Keeping the Lights On

It is hard to keep turning on the lights when you’re not here to see them.

But the spirit of the season remains even amidst the empty places you occupied like the ornament with your photograph that hangs from the Christmas tree.

Faith and hope combine to move my hand.
I grab the plug as if it is a lifeline and turn the lights back on again.
