Someone stole my gloves at Walmart
But I really didn't care
(They must need them more than I do)
'Cuz there's Christmas in the air.
Said he'd take me to the movies
He forgot;we didn't go
Wasn't surprised I didn't mind
It's Christmas time you know.
He tried to take me out to eat
Then cussed at me left and right
But I could still smile serenely
'Cuz tonight's a holy night.
Sure don't have a lot of money
Don't have a sweetheart to hold
Don't own designer anything
Yet have riches beyond gold.
His light shines brightly in my heart
From the sober day I was born
It burns to pass the torch and share
Like the star on that Christmas morn.
(dedicated to my ex, who is dying from the malady of alcoholism.)
