Frosty days, cold winter nights
Trimming the tree with bright shiny lights
The light of the moon, on the sparkling snow
Reminds me of Christmas's long ago

While my sister and I, sat quiet on the stair
We listened to carols over the air
Then quietly, all snugly and warm in our bed
We thought we heard sleigh bells ring overhead

Mother would hide a surprise in the tree
Something special for us to search for, you see
And now I do the same for mine
A little something to make their eyes shine

Turkey and trimmings and family fun
From early morning 'till day was done
That was Christmas and what it should be
For families and friends like you and me

Each year finds me remembering
Christmas's now in the past
Those happy times of childhood
Forever, with me, will last.
