A photograph, a blanket
Some mistletoe, confetti snow
An angel to put on a tree
Santa Claus in crayon
To make you smile today
While you're so far away

So I'm sending you a little Christmas
Wrapped up with love
A little peace, a little light
To remind you of
How I'm waiting for you, praying for you
I wanted you to see
So I'm sending you a little Christmas
Till you come home to me

Some gingerbread, a candy cane
A stocking I made with your name
I filled it with your favorite things
A way to say I love you
Like kisses through the air
Hoping you'll feel me there

So I'm sending you a little Christmas
Wrapped up with love
A little peace, a little light
To remind you of
How I'm waiting for you, praying for you
I wanted you to see
So I'm sending you a little Christmas
Till you come home to me

Home, into these arms of mine
Home where you belong

So I'm sending you a little Christmas
Wrapped up with love
A little peace, a little light
To remind you of
How I'm waiting for you, praying for you
I wanted you to see
So I'm sending you a little Christmas
Till you come home

Home, till you come home to me
Come home

    This song makes me think about the distance between my daughter in NYC and our family in PA. Most of the distance is physical because we can't just drive up anytime that we want to, but part of the distance is emotional as well. Her personality does not lend itself to warm cozy relationships, and I often feel that she doesn't know how much I love her. I wish I had a way to help her feel that love, but I don't know how to reach her. She is a dancer/singer and is strongly influenced by music. Maybe if I could write a song that spoke as clearly to the heart as this one does it would reach her in some way.

    I brake down at this song. I feel bad for the military families who can't have a member with them on the holidays.

    My fiance is currently serving in afghanistan. This song sums up, word for word, everything i feel about being away from him this time of year.
