My Christmas Wish

The tree stands decorated and glowing brightly.

My wish for this Christmas,

My wish is for us all to be together.

It has been too long — near twenty years.

Oh,  please bring us all home this Christmas.

The cards and letters have been mailed.

The sugar cookies iced in green and red,

The aroma of the mincemeat tarts fill the room.

Soon it will be time to fill the stockings,

Soon it will be time to roast the turkey.

My wish is for us all to be together

We would gather all around the tree

Presents all different shapes and wrapped so right.

Singing Christmas Carols.

If all I could ever have in this world,

It would be for us to be together,

One and All, Young and Old.

We would remember those Christmases gone by.

This is my wish.

Written by Carol Lewis on December 4th, 1999.

Missing my family and wishing that we could all be together for Christmas.
