christmas ditty

IMG_1105.jpg

I thought of you this evening
as I was dashing through the sand
all the way to that Irish bar
with a Guinness in my hand
and when I looked above
I thought I saw a shooting star
I couldn't help but smile
as I wondered where you are

so merry merry Christmas
I'll hoist my glass away
and if I look to the east
I know you're never far away

well I said goodnight to all my friends
as I climbed my favorite hill
I watched the late night traffic sleigh bell cars
but the world stood still
and when I got back to the beach
I saw waves and jumping fish
I drew an X in the spot where we first met
and I made a Christmas wish

so merry merry Christmas
I'll hoist my glass away
and if you look to the east
you'll know I'm never far away

I'm not done listening yet, but if I actually like a Christmas song, there'll be hell to pay! :-)

This made me think of Julie, as I always do on Christmas, and I'm sure you do too.

I miss you.
I love you.
