Reindeer fly across a silvery sky
To the light of a candle lit room
Where an old man sits with his pipe aglow
And his eyes set upon the moon...

It is not Christmas when your lonely,
It is not Christmas unless your free,
There is much more to Christmas cheer
Than presents and a Christmas tree...

The old man sitting in his nightcap,
Spoke with a mumble and a tear in his eye,
"My loved ones are all home for Christmas
And there is no place for I."

Well, the reindeer landed like thunder
With snow they came tumbling down
From the clouds, through the trees, upon the rooftop
Of the old man who was wearing a frown...

With a gingle and a jangle they clattered,
As the old fellow flew of with a nod
Through the door of his North Pole cottage,
Through the sleet, the snow, and the sod...

And he yelled, "I will be there for Christmas!"
As his sleigh loaded up to depart,
"Yes, I will be there for Christmas,
If only-- in my heart."

What a nice piece!  Being there in one's heart is really the whole thing in a nutshell, isn't it?  The artwork added a nice touch.  Thank you.  Rae
