Christmas 2012






I see a twinkle in your eye,
So this shall be my Christmas star
And I will travel to your heart:
The manger where the real things are

And I will find a mother there
Who holds you gently to her breast,
A father to protect your peace,
And by these things you shall be blessed.

And you will always be reborn
And I will always see the star
And make the journey to your heart:
The manger where the real things are.
