I wish I could tell you how the holidays spun out for me
How at first I dragged my feet thinking I would not decorate nearly so much as usual--
Kinda afraid to get on the holiday band wagon--
Cause I know someday it won't be the same anymore--
The people who used to ride with me
My mom and dad and Meemaw and Peepaw
Well, they're weren't here this Christmas and haven't been for a number of years now--
But somehow my memories keep them just as vivid as their first nativity celebrated heavenly--
I decided to get on anyway
To go ahead and kick up my heels--
And before I knew it my heart was flying high
Rejoicing with the people God has embedded in my heart at this time and place--
During this season, the almost winter, of my Merry-Go-Life.
