Christmas Past Ghosts

The mistletoe and holly
The lights in the tree
The magic of Christmas
Has faded for me
A painful reminder
Of how life used to be
It’s now me and my thoughts
And a bottle of Scotch
Christmas Eve

Never forgotten
How lost they might be
Christmas past ghosts
Are still all I see
I was blessed
And I’m thankful
What we’ve seen
Where we’ve been
Now that you’re not here
There’s no more jolly for me

Can’t stand the joyful
The laughter and cheer
It may be the season
But I just can’t care
Time has moved on
And since past can’t be changed
I’ll sit here and drink
Till my memories fade
Past dreams of white christmas
Haunt this silent night
A lonely black void
Christmas past ghosts
