First Christmas

Five days til Christmas,
I wish that you were here
The tree is lit, the candles bright
I feel your spirit near.

Four days til Christmas
The tears begin to flow
The winter sky is open
And it begins to snow

Three days til Christmas
The presents are all wrapped
But the tree is looking empty
As my heart tries to adapt.

My heart has grown weary Sam
The days are growing long
I’ve adorned the tree with memories
But I can’t accept you’re gone.

Two days till Christmas
The night’s dark sky is clear
Your star is shining down on me
As it twinkles like a tear.

Today it is Christmas Eve
The trees are capped in snow
The lights are dancing joyfully
As they flicker in the glow.

Christmas morning came today
But that was no surprise
I feel the love you sent to me
Underneath the Christmas skies.

Loved and missed until my last breath.
I love you sweet son.
Merry Christmas in Heaven.
