Merry Christmas to Heaven

As we gather around at this time of the year
It makes us wish even more that you were here
We will never grow accustom to life without you
We know that you are peaceful now
Walking streets of gold
Holding hands with the angels
And never growing old
That doesn’t change the void we feel
Opening up the presents
And sitting down for a meal
With each light on the tree that twinkles
We feel that you are close
Wishing we had the time to say that we loved you the most
Now we will share each moment in memory of you
Merry Christmas to Heaven
Merry Christmas to You

My holiday

An empty house cold and dreary,
no joy just sorrow and ever so weary.

No tree or decorations to show,
just me and my thoughts living here all alone.

No daughter to hold and say I love you this Christmas day,
no gift exchanges with my wife no embracing or holding her tight.

For all that I've done it's still not enough,
loosing my family when times got tough.

And all I can do is to feel so ashamed,
hope for the best, this is my holiday.
