Last Christmas


If I would have known last Christmas was to be your last

What would I have done different



Would I have spent the whole day by your side

Would I have hugged you a little tighter



Would I have held your hands

As we watched the movies of old



Truly believed in my heart

That it is a wonderful life…in spite of all the messes



Would I have gone to the ends of the earth

Found just the right present to bring you a smile



Would I have shared the good news of Christmas

Ensured that you received God’s gift of the Savior
