I'm not looking forward to Christmas
Not since we lost Mum this year
I'm not looking forward to a Christmas
Devoid of any Christmas cheer
Dads doing his best to lift our spirits
All though inside he's really hurting too
He wants to make it a special time
And do the things like Mum used to do
So we decked the house with garlands
And trimmed the Christmas tree
We hung the Christmas cards on strings
So that everyone could see
Then with all the decorations up
My Dad went round us one by one
To ask us what gift we wanted
And he promised his best would be done
My sister Jules wants new clothes
Kenny wants music of any kind
The twins they want an X-Box
And the baby really doesn't mind
Then Dad asked me "what do you want son?
What gift would stop you feeling glum"?
I said "I don't want a present Dad
All I wish for Christmas is my Mum"
I am a fifty something family man with a passion for writing and I draw inspiration from those around me.
