If Only In My Dreams
A Letter Back Home

Dearest Mom and Dad

Well it looks like
I wont be home this year
To celebrate with the family
The Holy Christmas cheer

I will miss the love you
built this family upon
I will feel it in my heart
even though I am gone

The awesome memories
you built over the years
I now remember
with joyful tears

The excitement in
the little ones eyes
that sparkles brighter
than any star in the skies

Oh the aroma of all the good food
especially the cookies and pies
These memories I hold deep within
that now brigns tears to my eyes

But most of all I find I miss
the Church service of Christmas Eve
When we all paused the busyness
and came together and as a family

For on the most Holiest of Days
my memories will take their start
It is because of you Mom and Dad
I hold them so dear in my heart

But on this day I am proud
to do my military regimes
But know I will be with you all
If Only In My Dreams

I'll Be Home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
and presents on the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
