So many Christmas memories, Josh,
Of precious years gone by;
The lights, the sounds, all wrench at our heart,
And bring teardrops to my eye.
How wonderful were our Christmases
When you, Lyn and Chris were small!
Joy and laughter filled our hearts,
And so much love between us all.
Still when I close my eyes,
I'm taken back to that time in space,
And reminisce how it used to be
When all was in its place.
I know you live in heaven, Josh,
And you walk on streets of pure gold,
But what I'd give for just one minute
To have you here to hold!
I trust you in God's great care
And know some day, once more,
We'll all be together again
When we reach heaven's golden shore.
