Brad Peterson X-Mas 2017

Who do you miss this Christmas?

Who do you miss this Christmas? not your typical Christmas song…
There’s a word in Portuguese:
noun: saudade; plural noun: saudades
a feeling of longing, melancholy, or nostalgia

If we’re fortunate, as we get older, we may recall in wistful reverie -an idyllic Christmas season surrounded by loved ones. For me, that blissful time, before experience and loss, can hurt to contemplate. Rather than the melancholic tendencies I’ve often fallen to, this year I choose to celebrate in fond remembrance, those absent loved ones.

Lyrics:
It’s twentyfive of twelve and all is well
Yet there seems there’s been something lost
The absent ones we grieve
On a Christmas eve
Sparkle in the crystalline frost
Come this late December
Recall when we were all together
We’ll toast the one who’ve come and gone
Ribbons on the wreath
Lights are strung on trees
Kiss me underneath mistletoe
Happy on our way
On a Christmas day
Memories buried deep in the frost
Come this late December
Recall when we were all together
We’ll toast the one who’ve come and gone
And if the wind blows
Like the ghosts of Christmas past
If come a long snow in a wintery blast
We’ll hold fast
It’s twentyfive of twelve and all is well
Yet there seems there’s been something lost
The absent ones we grieve
On a Christmas eve
Sparkle in the crystalline frost
Come this late December
Recall when we were all together
We’ll toast the one who’ve come and gone
