THE CHRISTMAS LANTERN

A beautiful Christmas Lantern
To guide your way in the dark
You can hear your homeland calling you
As on this journey you embark

You know that you'll be welcomed home
With loving arms wide open
No one will ask what took so long
Those words will go unspoken

There will be plenty of tears of happiness
Lots of hugs to go around
That's just how the folks were there
In that little country town

The lights are getting closer now
Your heart begins to pound
Anticipation rising up
With emotions so profound

They know that you are coming
They'll be waiting at the door
Screaming fits of pure delight
Like you've never known before

They will all step back and give you room
To see your Dad standing there alone
Then he’ll come to you with outstretched arms
"Welcome Home, Child .. Welcome Home".
