What does christmas mean to you? ?
'Melissa' my sister Sophia says,
'What does christmas mean to you? '
A little girl about the age of seven replies
'Christmas is the time you get to spend with your family
And experience the joy of giving.'
No matter how true this was
doesnt mean it will ever happen again
For, that night as we were tapingour christmas
and our 'everlasting joy
Our opening presents
the unearthly presence
The one that covers wach girl and boy
Little did we know
that this would be
our last time
For after that
we drifted apart
moving from eachother
And the we lost sophia our darling sister
And then we lost our mother.
We never had another christmas
Where we sat around a tree
I never got to see that joy again
Wat least not inside of me
So what does christmas mean to you?
Now take time to really think
Hold on tight to that idea
and never let it sink.
