” YOU NEEDED ME”
For years Christmas not celebrated, a son lost with war,
A daughter now sick “so tell me sir” what is there to enjoy.?
As this holiday approaches there are memories of sadness,
For a family of three each their own battle to overcome.
Something as a miracle is in the air on this certain Christmas,
A visitor comes to bring hope and let them see there is happiness.
A stranger yet no stranger at all, time has passed, he has for a moment come home,
” Who are you” asks a father as there is something familiar about this wandering man.
On Christmas Eve he arrived, brought smiles and laughter to a family that had no smiles,
Shared the night and changed some lives, it seemed like a family was whole once more.
Morning came and it was time for him to go, say goodbye,” Why are you here” “you needed me”,
” Merry Christmas dad”, “Merry Christmas son,” a walk on into eternity.
