As I look back on Christmas' past
My heart fills with joy
And my eyes fill with tears
I remember being there, sitting
Opening up those gifts
Loving every one of them
And the ones who gave them even more
Now as I sit here, looking
I think back to those moments
And the ones who are no longer here
My heart aches for them
Wishing they were here now
This holiday makes me happy
I enjoy this time of year
But still it makes me sad to see
The chair in the corner
Where my grandfather used to sit
It is now forlorn and barren
With him no longer here
I just stay here and think
And a tear rolls down my face
As I look back on Christmas' past
With a heart of joy
And eyes filled with tears
