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.
