Merry Christmas, Mom - Part IV

Every Christmas was a good Christmas when you were around.

But it stopped being good after you were lowered into the ground.

The last Christmas that we spent together was four years ago.

I had no idea that it would be our last Christmas, I didn't know.


When a man spends Christmas with family, it means everything.

And when that is taken away, it's like being struck by lightning.

When we spent our last Christmas together, I didn't know the end was near.

Merry Christmas Mom, because you're in my heart, a part of you is still here.
