A Christmas Incomplete


In sheets of white you lay
yet cold as snow
I held your hand so tight
but had to let you go
A star to follow
this eve of birth
The choirs rejoice
My silent night
A Christmas incomplete

A smile a tear there's no deceit
You move beyond my reach
I find no reason
Yet drink the health of each
A time of cheer
Goodwill and joy
For peace on earth
This silent night
A Christmas incomplete

In your eyes of fading blue
A truth is told
To leave is not a choice
I was never that bold
Lay down your arms
For this brief moment
This season of peace
One silent night
A Christmas incomplete

Your hand forever now in mine
You move beyond all time
Even as your leaving
The seasons bells still chime
For mother and child
A new star shines
Your silent night
A Christmas incomplete

Hold on to each other now
Together we are tied
Not bound nor chained
You know they lied
Friends and lovers
It's never black or white
Brothers and sisters
Our silent night
Our Christmas incomplete
