Precious Memories

During each Christmas Season

Memories of the past flood my mind

Thoughts of loved ones now gone

Bring an ache to the depth of my soul.

As I hold them all close to my heart

I'm hoping that one glorious day

We will all celebrate the birth of Jesus

Together in God's heavenly home.

These precious memories of them

That always linger in my mind

Could this be God's way of saying

My loved ones are waiting for me.
