CHRISTMAS SNOW

A personal favourite from my batch of seasonal songs - originally written for all those unable to be at  

home for Christmas, but who keep the best of what it means in their imaginations: now - with added

meaning - given a fresh "airing" at a particularly relevant time around the world. 

....................................................................

At home the Christmas snow is falling

I see it clear so far away

I hear the happy voices calling...

See the children at their play 

 

Every Yuletide brings its reason

To celebrate old days before

Family gathered for the Season

Friends and neighbours at the door

 

Whatever in my life forsakes me

Wherever in the world I go

I bless this heart that always takes me

Home again for Christmas snow

 

Inside, holly 'round each doorway

Mistletoe as well there'll be

Bright wrapped presents on the floor stay

Waiting underneath the tree

 

Outside, church bells are car-olling

Soft flakes dust the things they find

And Christmas snow is surely falling

In many another far-off mind

 

Whatever in my life forsakes me

Wherever in the world I go

I bless this heart that always takes me

Home again for Christmas snow

 

At home the Christmas snow is falling

I see it clear across the miles

I hear those happy voices calling

See those dear familiar smiles

 

Every Yuletide brings new reason

To celebrate old days of yore

Family gathered for the Season

Friends and neighbours at the door

 

Whatever in my life forsakes me

Wherever in the world I go

I bless this heart that always takes me

Home again for Christmas snow

Philipos - thanks for the comment and good wishes.
BM - I think the word "bubble"
Might present rhyming trouble!
Besides, it's not very romantic in the seasonal sense. ?
Thanks are also due for the "likes" for this upload.

Perhaps you could work the word 'bubble' into the poem Mark...
