Away Again

This is for all of you who are away from home this Christmas. It is a poem I wrote entitled, "Away Again."

I am away this Christmas,
   but I will send my heart
to ring each bell you hear
   when distance keeps us part.

I can’t be with you now
   to sit there by the fire
and hold your hand in mine
   and fill my heart’s desire.

When you awake my love
   You’ll feel my Christmas touch.
Know it is my message -
   I love you very much.

I can’t be home this year
   to hear the season sing
nor be with you to smile
   at every little thing.

I can’t be home this Christmas
   to decorate the tree
So hang a stocking too
   from heart at hearth for me?

When morning comes at dawn,
   with every breath I take
I'll hear your sweetened laugh
   to take away my ache.

I can’t be home this Christmas,
   if only it weren’t so.
Hear my special Christmas wish -
   never again to go.
