Gift of Silence

Holiday season descended

Weighty and painful upon her

Devoid of signature trappings

Joyful family feasting

Satisfaction enveloped in giving

Heartfelt gifts in their wrappings

Desirous of spreading good cheer

Wishes for holiday joy

She draws cards for a multitude

Channels elusive much-needed peace

With limited options, she fashions

Personal gifts for dearest family

Crocheting sore fingers crokked

In minds eye she gifts her beloved

The one she most crucially hurt

Peace, repentance, recompense

Hardest of all is withholding

Words chosen for healing and thanks

Instead she gives with heart shattered

The gift of her utter silence
