McCornack Family Memories


This time of year always brings
Many remembrances back to me
My family gathered closely
Singing carols by the tree

Seeing family once again
That sometimes live far away
Hugs and smiles we cherish
Newfound cousins enjoying play

My memories go back far
Into my childhood past
Our holiday traditions make
Memories that forever last

Mom and Dad and Robert
Oh, how the thoughts come back
For happy cherished memories
Are something I will never lack

Steve as a little boy
Drawing water on the porch
Yes, the young folks in families
Carry on that traditional torch

I think of grandma, how I miss her
I would love to give her a squeeze
For she helps me keep alive
The McCornack family memories!

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
