"Silent Night"

CHRISTMAS IN MY HEART

I remember Christmas, was it so long ago?

I would awaken, the yard covered with snow,

My stocking was filled with fruit and candy canes,

Not diamonds nor riches nor golden rings.

Oh, we had a tree with presents galore,

Only a few, if any, came from a store,

Our house was filled with a warm Christmas scent,

Not Mom explaning to Dad about the money she had spent.

My Mom and my sisters had cooked through the night ,

When the table was ready, it was a wonderful delight,

Dad sat at one end; Mom at the other,

There in the middle, me, the dog, my sisters, and brother.

I want to spend Christmas in the days like before,

Where it lives in the heart, Not In A Wal-Mart Store.
