The Christmas Gift
Christmas time is here again.
And the snow falls to the ground.
It hasn't been that long ago.
Since last years came around.
The seasons sneak up on us in no time at all.
As the New Years swiftly go by
The gift that you gave me each Christmas eve.
Was a wonderful, sweet peace of mind.
You never took the Christ out of Christmas.
His birth was the focus so clear.
No you never took the Christ out of Christmas.
You taught me to hold him so near.
I know in my life full of struggle and strife.
Where to turn even though you're not here.
There were those that were touched by your giving
Your compassion reached far and wide
The hungry, the helpless and those with no home
You feared not the dark of the night
Of all the gifts I’ve gotten from Christmas’s of old
Shinny toys beneath an evergreen tree
The gift you shared that stays ever close to my heart
Is the lesson of Christ’s love for me
So thanks for the memories Mama
My childhood was filled with much joy
I know you’re with God in the heavenly home
And I love you, your sweet baby boy
