gabs I feel deeply listening to all of Melanie Peterson's Music. This song has an nostalgic feel with longing and memories of better times. Holidays long ago of loved ones of long distances or long gone in an earthly sense.

lyrics

I don't want to reminisce
'Bout Christmases we knew
This year I will celebrate
The memory of you

I'll put aside my sorrow
And every unshed tear
And think of you and all the joy
We knew when you were here

Our time together taught us all
What Christmas time is for
And that's what I'll remember most
Until we meet once more

I'll put aside all my sorrow
And every unshed tear
And think of you and all the joy
We knew when you were here

Do you see
Countless Christmas trees
Around the world below
Do you see
Our Upturned faces
And how we miss you so?

I don't mind that once again
Christmas has come round
It's when the sweetest memories
And thoughts of you are found

I'll put aside all my sorrow
And every unshed tear
And think about you and all the joy
We knew when you were here
I'll think about you and all the joy
We knew when you were here
