[Last year…] I spent Christmas with my family
with my brother
and his family
and my dear Rosa.
We cooked desserts and chicken.
My brother made the salads.
We spent Christmas very well with my family.
This year I would like to spend Christmas
with my mother.
I have not seen her in nineteen years.
I also want to spend Christmas
with my father
and all my brothers and sisters.
Mommy I do not lose faith
on this date, December 25th
I am going to be with you.
I long to touch your skin
to give you a big hug.
I have been missing you so much.
I also have been missing my father.
The he lives in heaven
and cannot be with us in person.
He is always going to be watching after us
He watches overall all of us.
