~ A Christmas Bow For My Soldier ~

Our yellow ribbon has faded,
so we tied a new one tight
A bold symbol to represent your spirit glowing with Christmas light,
It's color reminds us of all
you are going through
And your heart of love that beats for what is true.
More than ever at Christmas,
we do want you...
to come home to stay,
But as God has another plan, we'll try hard to be brave on this special day.
Oh how so dearly we wish...
you were with us here,
Home in our hearts, forever near.
How much we want to hold you...
close and never let you go,
To keep you from harm, no more suffering to know.
We are praying angel comfort
for you in all your pain,
So you will feel the peace of Christmas instead of chilling rain.
For, you have such courage...
brave loyalty in your heart,
A call to be a blessing where you are, that keeps us apart.
So, while we'll miss you so...
our hearts also beat with pride,
As we celebrate yuletide this year, without you by our side.
But, in spirit you are here...
just as if you never went away,
For the Christmas love we share, means you will be with us on our day.
Close forever, never to part...
held together for the same arms,
Up-hold us, as the ones that keep your soul from harm.
Each day we wake and pray 
God your heart to keep,
And may you dream many sweet memories as you sleep,
While you lay beneath
the shining stars above,
Surrounded by eternal love.
God brought you into His world 
so long ago,
For you to set others free from the tyranny of the foe,
You go forth every day, 
with your life to give.
That precious little ones may come to know truth and be free to live.
We send you our blessing,
we send you our Christmas love
If somehow our wishes
can bring you light from above,
To surround your heart with that first Christmas joy and peace,
So that little boy delight will never cease.
The color of your life will never fade, 
your rich beauty is tied in place
and your light will glow forever...
for in our heart, we see your face.
