We visited you today mom and I
Set a Christmas wreath at your head
We have done this for years gone by
Merry Christmas, we miss you so.
You fought for our country
Came home safe and sound
Created a wonderful family
Full of love abound.
God took you away in the prime of your life
Before you witnessed first grandchild
It just wasn’t right
We visit you often, why,oh why,oh why.
I honor your Marine picture on my wall
Handsome and strong you stood tall
Your life was just beginning
With the love of your life, why oh why??
We placed this wreath once again
It is Christmas and we miss your violin
The sledding and going to the pond to skate
Your love for life lives on in us.
But most of all I want you to know
When you were stern, it was a lesson
For us to learn,, I got it, I am tough
A fighter in lovers gloves.
Thirty years are gone, not a day goes by
I sing a song, we shared together
Father and daughter, family dance along
Where are you now??
Does God give our Veterans special wings?
I hope he does, you all deserve it!
Because of you all, we are here
To enjoy Christmas cheer!
