Sad Comes From Happy

Sad comes from happy
But how can that be
At this time of year
With gifts by the tree

As we look back on life
And its memories
We miss those we've lost
And with teary eyes grieve

Our gift of reflection 
Can feel like a curse
Our happiest times
Can become our worst

For deep in our heart
Lies such a great pain
We'd give all we own 
To hear I love you again

For the greatest of gifts
In this life that we know
Are those we love here
And those Heaven hold
