Longing for a Miracle

Christmas star hung bright
But turmoil brewed far below
World at war this holiday

So I made a wish
That harmony would soon reign
And battlefields be destroyed

The best miracle
Raise my husband from his grave
So he’d know he’d fought and won

Neath the mistletoe
Still clad in his uniform
We’d celebrate peace on earth

    God bless you both for your sacrifice. I will pray that it never happens again.
