I Will Be There With You At Christmas

by Richard John Scarr

Hang the fairy lights and paper chains.
And decorate the tree.
Leave mince pies out for Santa Claus.
And my slippers out for me.

And I'll be there with you at Christmas.
For there is no where else I'd be.
But right there in the bosom,
of my own dear family.

I'll be sitting in my favorite chair,
and watching all you do.
And when you sing our favorite songs.
I will sing along with you

I'll be joining in those silly games,
we always used to play.
And hanging onto every word,
that each one has to say.

And when you say:"To you, with love!"
And toast me as you do.
I will return your toast symbolically.
And tell you that I love you too!

I will be there with you at Christmas.
As I will be, every year!
Until one by one you join me.
For a lovely Christmas here.
