Christmas time now comes again
A time for mirth, a time for friends
A festive joy floats on the wind
And happiness abounds
Christmas time brings gifts and fun
Brings hope and joy for everyone
With families forming up as one
And good times all around
Christmas time is warmth and joy
Is merry times for girls and boys
Both young and old enjoy new toys
And merry carols sound
But when I chance a look to see
The truth behind a Christmas Eve
A different tide has come to be
Beset on common ground
For shopping takes up family time
The price tags on all presents climb
And happiness is hard to find
When stress can make one frown
When was Christmas made a chore?
When did joy come from a store?
Does giving mean receiving more?
Can happiness be found?
A Christmas gift brought me back home
For Christmas I was not alone
And Christmas time for me has shown
That’s all I need right now
