For you, dad, Merry Christmas

Time passes and life gets harder

I find myself pushed into a corner

How can I stand?

Lights twinkle, bells jingle

The cold is bitter

Smiles around, gifts to be found

How can I smile?

I use to smile

I use to laugh

I use to love the holiday

How can I now?

Gone too soon

Ripped from my hand

Christmas seems meaningless

How can I without you?

I will stay strong, they need me

In the dark of night, I need not be strong

Cold to the bone

How can I feel?

One day, one evening

I shall find you once again

Warm and alive

How will I stop from the smiling, laughing, and praising?
