With fondness I remember Holidays of years far gone When families celebrated Around the hearth and home I've heard, "You can't go home again." But I do, in my mind When I close my eyes and reminisce Such memories I find Love is all around me As we are reunited Shining eyes and blushing cheeks On children so excited The tree is trimmed and glowing Gifts wrapped with special care Sweet smells come from the kitchen I feel as if I'm there Mistletoe and gleaming holly Through the house abound Now's the time for singing With friends all gathered 'round Slowly sipping eggnog Beside the fire's amber glow God is watching o'er us His blessings to bestow Christmas is more than gifts and cheer It's happiness and love And a Babe born in a manger Sent from God above It's nice to go back home again If only in my mind But I want to make new memories While I still have the time Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© July 21, 2005 All Rights Reserved divider
