A Soldier’s Christmas

The decorations are up

The Christmas songs are loud

For Christmas this year

You’re making me proud.

I can’t imagine how Christmas must be

alone overseas, so we can be free.

Some families hang stockings and mistletoe

I hang a yellow ribbon, till you come home.

I see couples holding hands or sharing a kiss,

A date using Skype is my only wish.

On Christmas Eve we won’t be cuddling by the fire,

but your heart is still my only true desire.

When I wake up on Christmas morning

I won’t get your hugs or kisses

but know that I will always love you

this will just be a memory together next Christmas.

With love,
