Christmas Memories of my Mom

In A Child's Eyes

He was only three years old,
When his Mother passed away.
But, he remembers just how beautiful,
She was on that Christmas Day.

She shone with such a perfect glow, 
Like the Angel on the tree.
He couldn't take his eyes off her,
He was blinded by her beauty.

She looked so pretty in her dress,
Flowing like an Angel's wings.
Her voice was soft and beautiful,
As he listened to her sing.

"Silent Night .. Holy Night,
All is calm .. All is Bright." ...
She sang as she decorated,
Hanging ornaments and lights.

She picked him up and let him help,
Placing the Angel on the top.
He remembered just how much fun it was,
And never wanted it to stop.

That was many, many years ago,
But, it's still a favorite memory.
That Christmas within my child's eyes,
Because, that little boy was me.
