We've shared our hearts, full of Holiday Cheer
and shopped for presents for loved ones this year
The house is dressed up with garland and lights
That sparkle and shine through the Holiday nights
But even with all of this Holiday bliss
There's someone we lost that we terribly miss
And as this Christmas Day draws near
We wish with all of our hearts she was here.
She's living her life way up past the stars
Somewhere past Jupiter, Saturn and Mars
She's spending her Christmas in Heaven, you see
And last night as I slept, a dream came to me
She was standing before me, happy and well
She said to me "I have something to tell…
Heaven's more wonderous than you would believe
It's the greatest of gifts I could ever receive.
like for you all to remember the good…
You know that I'd be there if only I could.
So don't feel so bad that I'm not there
There are so many memories you can share
As you gather together, I'm sure you'll find
The gifts deep within you that I left behind.
Each one is unique and wrapped brightly in love
They shine from your hearts as I shine from above."
