A new holiday song written just for this year...even though most of us can't be together, hopefully it will still bring joy to your heart and a smile to your face!


I'm staying home this year,
Won't travel far this year.
I'll drop a line, or send you a card...
I'll decorate it, I'm sure it's not hard.
And it's best for the rest...This Year.

I'll go all out this year,
But won't go out this year.
I'll send a gift, perhaps two or three...
Along with with cash, to buy you a tree
To be delivered, heard it was free...This Year.

And oh my love, how I miss you.
And my lips long to kiss you,
But I know I can't be near this year.
And let me say every letter
That you write makes it better.
For I know I'll see you soon next year.

So I'm staying home this year,
Call on the phone this year.
Let's set a time for us to rewind
Our Christmases, first yours and then mine.
And that's how we'll be fine this year!
