Another Christmas Day,

He almost wishes it away…

Another year

That he fears

His love’s disappointment displays!

Once again, her gift’s  last minute,

Not meaning offense–his foot’s in it…

A struggling year–

Supposed to have cheer–

Another instance his fault, she’ll spin it!

‘Tween budget and depression he’s in hoc,

Again beaten by the clock…

Purchases during years

Are not Christmas cheers,

Excuses considered as further crock!

Expected from this Poet,

A piece to let her know that…


Their love’s viable,

Not being stale old hat!

His spirit compared to hers is rather poor,

Looking far more selfish for sure…

Depressed and caught

And likely as not

Facing words that he really doesn’t care!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
