Season's Sadness--By Jack Horne--England

Season's Sadness

With Christmas and the New Year come
my thoughts of those I love and miss:
those treasured relatives and friends -
oh, how I long for one more kiss -
but Death has taken them away,
and sent them to eternal bliss;
but you, my love, are living still,
condemning me to reminisce
about the joy, I knew with you;
without your love my life's amiss...

Jack Horne enjoys reading and writing poetry.


  1. Dear Jack,
    I love the lilt and flow of this piece which adds power to the note of sadness it contains.

  2. A heartfelt poem Jack. This time of the year can be bittersweet. Nice poem, enjoyed reading it!

  3. Memories, always worth a cherished kiss. So many can relate to these sentiments.
    Hugs, SuZ

  4. Dear Jack, what a joy to read you poem, although it has some sad touch. Great work!
    Love from Gert
