Remember Them (a poem)

Mimi Evans Winship
So many hearts break at this time of year,

The season of joy and warmth, families near.

Stockings are hung by the chimney with care. 

‘Happy Hanukah’ rings through the wintry air,


And only the lonely dream with despair

Of past seasons with loved ones no longer there.

When you light your Menorahs and recall Bethlehem,

Take some time out to remember them.

So many hearts break at this time of year,

The season of joy and warmth, families near.

Stockings are hung by the chimney with care. 

‘Happy Hanukah’ rings through the wintry air,


And only the lonely dream with despair

Of past seasons with loved ones no longer there.

When you light your Menorahs and recall Bethlehem,

Take some time out to remember them.
