HAPPY FEELINGS OF CHRISTMAS
Why are you thought of in a special
Why are you on my mind throughout each Day?
'Tis Christmastide! And far and wide
It matters not you're there and we are here,
And we can't see enough of you all year,
Strong are the ties family-wise;
Remembering times shared when we were young
Of preparations, Christmas smells, songs sung.
Secrets to keep, trying to sleep
'Til Christmas morn.
The beribboned parcels beneath the tree,
Laughing, unwrapping, there's too much to see!
Hearts filled with fun. "Turkey is done" -
And together yet, our fam'ly is now
Beneath the tree that unites us, somehow,
Feelings and thoughts shared since wee tots -
Each Christmas morn!
The presence we feel of loved ones unseen;
As all those who are and those who have been
In Spirit, here; feel very near
'Tis Christmas Morn!
We see Divine Love in the manger scene
Where the Christ Child was born; what does this mean?
Lowly the place; holy his face;
Such Joy that morn!
CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS TO ALL!
