Christmas Is Back In Me Again.
Author: Clive B Ringshall


As I lay here thinking about years passed,
I remember when you were always there,
As each year passed you faded away.
As your time of year came,
I'd see people change around,
Smiles and forgiveness were in the air,
Houses decorated in lights,
I grew, and in you I stopped believing,
I grew too old for your knee,
I grew too old to decorate a tree,
Christmas's came and passed,
Know I'm young at heart again,
I've gotten a tree,
Lights around our house,
The warmth of Christmas,
Is all around,
Hot chocolate, and a simple wish,
I hope your Christmas is full of bliss,
To all my friends young and old,
To all like me who forgot to grow old,
Take a hand and wish them well,
Think of those who should be home,
I love you all and everyday,
You're in my thoughts in every way.

------- Author's Notes -------

Have a safe and happy Christmas, never forget the true reason behind christmas

Clive , i just love this..THIS IS BEAUTIFUL...

i stand right besides you holding your hand perhaps singing Christmas Caroles...
i know what you mean the SPIRIT of CHRISTMAS was always with me..and my children...only a bit different since my husband isn't the 4th setting at the table, but our SPIRITS are highly into the Reason yes the true meaning of Critmas of yestyerday today and tomorrow exists among the hearts of us that refise to Grow up... i believe in things that one can not see but feel...

thank you for sharing a big part of your heart with us..
