My Smile is Missing

Though bits and pieces of my heart litter the ground
The explosion of your death a war zone in my chest
Shrapnel of memories piercing my eyes and ears
This Christmas carol your favourite
Fruitcake your masterpiece
Your charitable soul missing
My tears trickling
I hold you in my cocoa
Under the warm blanket
And in my smile
That I will find again
