The Christmas Tree Light

As we watched television tonight --

By the lights of our Christmas tree,

I discovered something unusual

and very puzzling to me.

There was a flashing white light shining to the floor --

Twinkling with all its might;

It was hung on a branch,

Blinking so proudly and ever so bright!

How it came to be there

Is quite a mystery --

Because we only have colored lights

Upon our Christmas tree!

Then I began to think

Of how my mother loved Christmas so much;

That I decided, just maybe --

She came down from Heaven to visit us.

Like me, Mom loved the Christmas trees

and their lights shiny and bright;

She must have decided to become

One of our Christmas tree lights!
