Christmas Past


The memories most endearing
No matter where we roam
Are those of Christmas past
In a place we knew as home
The magic of the season
With scent of wax and pine
The aroma from the kitchen
That beckoned us to dine
The dancing lights upon the tree
That cast their Yuletide spell
The joyous song of carolers
Peace on earth Noel
The treasured scenes of yesteryear
Could prayer but make them last
Traditions of the heart live on
In dreams of Christmas past.
