Christmas Reflections

 All the children's eyes are glowing
Christmastime is finally here!
Outside the window it is snowing -
On the brightest evening of the year.

Children dream of Christmas morning;
And Santa Claus is on the way!
And I, a father, watch it snowing,
And drift back to another day

When I, a child, watched in wonder
As Christmas filled the world with joy.
I see myself, in faded shadows,
Long ago, a little boy.

Now the house is quiet, dark, and still,
And I can't sleep although I'm trying.
The children's dreams are filled with visions
Of Santa Claus and reindeer flying.

And in the silence of this evening
I watch the winter snowflakes fall -
Time is such a special gift...
But love's the greatest gift of all.

Merry Christmas to you and all those you love!

May all your dreams come true.

Best wishes now and always...
