Remember Lord, when I was a little girl
And Christmas was a beautiful time
I’d dress up pretty, with hair all acurl
And the atmosphere, was so sublime
It always seemed to snow, back then
A white beauty, covering the land
Santa was coming, tho’ not sure when
And everything felt so grand . . .
The house was full of love and cheer
As we wrapped presents, for each one
And Mom saying "Don’t peek, do ya hear?"
Or you’ll spoil . . . All the fun
We’d try to guess, what was wrapped
In the gifts, we gave to each other. . .
While Dad, in his favorite chair, napped
As we’d try to tease answers from Mother
Then . . . There was the Christmas tree
All glittery, Yet, with a warm glow
Decorated perfectly, for all to see
And a train ran around it, real slow
The "Manger" was our favorite thing
We would handle it with such care
As it was placed, underneath the tree . . .
Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus. . .Were there
Memories . . .Bring tears to my eyes
Christmas, is nothing like that today
The meaning and the joy of giving
Have all . . . .Been taken away
Remember Lord, how God gave us
"You" . . .As a gift to each and everyone
They celebrate Christmas, without you, now
How can that be. . . How is that done?
I yearn for Christmas, like days of old
With Thanks and Blessings, to The Lord
And detest how they have removed you
It hurts . . . Like a piercing of a sword
Lord, remember please, that I love you
I don’t care what the world has to say
You’ll remain in my heart on Christmas
The same as you do. . . Everyday!
