Merry Christmas From Heaven©

I know that someone is missing
At your Christmas feast,
And that it may be hard for you
To enjoy all the treats.

But I think if you could hear them
There is one thing they would say,
And that is, “Smile my love,
I’m with whom you celebrate today.”

Do not cry for me
It is you that I’m sad for,
Because I’m with the one
Who opened heavens door.

The manger that you talk about
For me is just a touch away,
So don’t be blue for me
This very special day.

In fact, rejoice even louder
When hallelujah you sing.
For I am standing right beside
The one you call
The King of Kings!!!

Merry Christmas!
