On Christmas Eve
When the sun goes down and shadows fall
My thoughts turn to pictures on my wall
My heart heaves a sigh for years gone by
And loved ones who have said goodbye
Those chubby hands that caressed my face
Have moved away to a distant place
Absent friends are still dear to my heart
Lo these many years we’ve had to part
My heart holds memories that will never fade
There is not one hour that I would trade
For the years of love that I found so rare
No precious jewels could ever compare

As the candles are lit and stockings hung
The sound of silence pervades the room
But I will not dwell on doom and gloom
For in my heart I hear music still
Of long gone voices and always will!
The sounds of laughter still sound in my ears
But now it’s grandchildren’s voices I hear
They stop and stare at the photos they see
Of their dad and mother, their grandfather and me
Photos of Aunts and Uncles…cousins galore
Bring unbridled laughter at the clothes we wore
Time stands still for all to see
And it makes me happy they’ll remember me!

As the fireplace crackles and the table is laid
My heart holds memories that will never fade
There is not one hour that I would trade
For the years of love that I found so rare
No precious jewels could ever compare
My Diamonds are here for all to see
My heart overflows…with my memories!

With God’s Blessings and Merry Christmas to all!
