Once again it’s Christmas time with all its ritual,
I find the chores more tiresome and I get cynical.
Ornaments, the Christmas tree, lights and all the cards,
But when I begin to decorate, it doesn’t seem so hard.
I remember folks I haven’t seen at all throughout the year,
So I share a wish and pen a word to make them feel more near.
Then memories of times gone by come alive within my mind
And a smile comes upon my face, as the card I finally sign.
So don’t think because our paths don’t cross and time has slipped away,
You’re not forgotten or left behind, just missed more everyday.
‘Cause Christmas helps recall those thoughts that bring things into view,
And shows us precious gifts God’s given, of knowing someone like you.
