I wish I were home for the holidays.
Home for the joys that Christmas brings
Being with loved ones dear and more
An old fashion Christmas is what I long for.
I reminisce about the ones when I was a child
With Mom and Dad and my brothers too.
Remembering the old time Christmas's
That we shared as a family in years of past.
Being with family and all loved ones dear
Is so special during this time of the year.
Gathering around the Christmas tree,
Excited about the presents for you and me.
The aroma of a cooking Christmas meal
As mother is cooking food for real.
Thinking about it makes your mouth water
Something almost lacking anymore.
The most homesick time of the year
Pondering over the good ole days past
Reminiscing brings such joy to my heart
A blessing I'll reflect on for all my years.
