What would I like for Christmas?, you might say
the list i could tell you is so long.
peace on earth, goodwill to all men
sounds like the makings of a great little song.
What would i like for Christmas?, you repeat
and I will pause a while to think.
House all the homeless, protect all the weak,
Give all people safe water to drink.
What would I like for Christmas?, you insist,
I sense your patience is starting to break.
so before you get angry , I will try to explain
what I want for a great Christmas to make.
I would like to spend a moment of time
with my son who is no longer here.
To talk and to laugh, to play and to hold,
To see how he’s grown, shed a tear.
I know what I ask is not possible,
though if you could grant my wish you would.
So instead I have only, ONE simple request,
It’ll bring peace to my mind if you should.
On Christmas day, as you open your gifts,
As you spend time with those that you love.
Could you please spare a moment, just a second of time
For those that are in heaven up above.
Those who have lost, those who still grieve,
They will have the same one request.
Remember their loved ones, celebrate in their lives,
REMEMBER, and their minds will be at rest.
