My first thought was flippant, “Of all the things I miss the most, I miss my mind.” An oldy but a goody. Snickers loudly.

For many, Christmas is a time of family, friends, togetherness, sharing and involvement.

This ode is for those who have someone missing.

I look for you and you’re not there

A distant memory now filled with care

Oh how we loved laughed and joked

Moments in time quickly evoked

By songs or artists equally shared

A shadow of your smile lingers, flared

Long since forgotten any contretemps

Only distant thoughts of attempts

Memories made to warm the hearts

Gathered together like puzzle parts

Placed together to form a picture

Complete with form and structure

A delightful moment in time together

All the more special such an adventure

To be recalled upon a moment’s notice

Your presence in my life a bonus

You will never go missing my friend

For recollections of you forever penned

In songs and games and many refrains

Long remembered you shall remain

The kitchen was filled with aroma so pungent

Chilli, garlic, onion, spices, unrepentant

A feast of smells that capture adventure

East coast, west coast, every day such splendor

Many your delightful aromas they miss

Turning up their nose instead as they hiss

The chef gestured his arms open wide

Extolling the benefits so filled with pride

Filling your senses with rapture so splendid

With flare and colour equally presented

Not for children this elegant presentation

It leaves adults with clear anticipation
