I stroll past shops all in a row,
My steps crunch in icy snow,
Gala decorations are everywhere,
The Christmas spirit fills the air.
Christmas trees strung with lights,
Their pretty colors pierce the night,
Twinkling colors of a winter rainbow
Across ice crystals on snow.
Shoppers scurry here and there
Laden with gifts picked with care
Their cheeks rosy from frosty cold
As carolers chorus songs of old.
Christmas scenes crafted with love
Display winged angels from above,
In the manger is a baby child
Born to the world meek and mild.
As sleigh bells ring this holy eve
A feeling of loneliness saddens me,
My loving family is so far away,
Iíll miss them this Christmas day.
This Christmas Iíll be on my own,
Oh how I wish I could go back home
To spend Christmas with kith and kin
And welcome the new year in.
Sights and sounds of holiday cheer
Give me pleasure at being here
But I canít help feeling all alone,
Itís Christmas and I should be home.
