snow settles on the lawn outside
lights flicker on my tree
i can see a whole row of houses
illuminated so brilliantly .
children knocking door to door
sing happy christmas songs
and the girl i have been longing for
is in my arms where she belongs .
this will be a special christmas
i feel it in my heart
it will be full of awe and wonder
and santa claus will play his part.
for he will deliver a tiny box
on christmas day
containing a ring of diamonds
inscribed with the words i want to say .
always and forever
the simple message will read
and i pray for a loving answer
when i fall to my knee's.
i'll whisper .. oh how i love you
you are my guiding light
the air that i am breathing
my hearts true delight.
so my darling will you marry me
and share all the love i have to give
and i promise i'll make you happy
for as long as we shall live .
yes the twenty-fifth of december
the day of our good lords birth
my beloved may give me the answer
to make me the happiest man on earth.
