Christmas cards


Christmas cards


Christmas is here once again

Brings memories of the past

The times we were together

I am alone again alas


Dusting down the Christmas cards

Placing them for all to see

The house is now empty

Since you were taken away from me


I miss the way you smiled

I miss you being there

I miss the warmth of your embrace

As I talk to an empty chair


Christmas can be a lonely time

When a loved one passes on

The sense of loss is painful

When you realise they have gone


As I read those Christmas cards

I thank God for all the years

That we both shared together

Through happiness and tears


I am going to enjoy Christmas

And toast our life with Champaign

Because I know one day

We shall meet in heaven again
