A Christmas Romance

 Julia lived in the Canadian mountains
 divorced with two girls four and eight
 struggling for work to make ends meet
 keeping up mortgage payment sometimes late

 At Christmas the snow was heavy
 Julia delivered a few presents in her jeep
 before getting home high in the mountains
 as the snow was now very deep

 At the local bank the manager was busy
 looking over the mortgage bad payers file
 one in particular had missed some payments
 looking far worse than rest of the pile

 Julia's account was top of the pile
 so Gregory the manager took a trip
 to give Julia a final demand
 in such weather, was he taking a flip?

 Eventually ploughing through the snow
 Gregory gave Julia her letter of fate
 but in driving away from Julia's
 he lost control his car was in a state

 Gregory had broken a few bones
 in his leg now unable to walk
 so Julia and her girls
 helped him even put on his sock

 With no electricity at hand
 Gregory did all he could
 for he saw their family spirit
 showing to him all things good

 As the snow storm came
 indoors for days were they all
 together they grew closer
 Julia and Gregory received a love call

 So once the snow cleared
 Julia thought never again to see
 as Gregory had to go back home
 would this love match come to be?

 One day Julia was tidying the garden
 when Gregory turns up to spring a surprise
 he had giving up his job
 so together their love mutually would rise
