The Last Christmas

by William A Predeau

Another year has come and gone,
Another Christmas Past
We reminisce of days gone by
And loved ones who have passed

We remember Christmases from long ago
And the joyous times we had
Opening our presents on Christmas morn
The smiles of our Mom and Dad

We ask ourselves, where did they go?
These years we oft recall
And how many more will we lay to rest
Before we hear the call

How many Christmases yet to come,
How many New Year’s days,
Are waiting in the years ahead
As we grow old and gray

But when that final Christmas comes
And we celebrate our last
The memories will all return
Of all the Christmas’ past

Those wonderful times we had before
Will fill our hearts once more
As we take that one last sleigh ride
Through heaven’s open door
