Holidays have a way
Of turning, all my highs into lows
I can't help but window shop for
Those that I miss so

Like tears in fallen snow
I somehow got lost along the way
I'm hopin' I can find my smile again
Before its Christmas day

Cause I can't hug a memory
Or look into its eyes
And the only gift I wish for
Wears angel wings tonight

Even though I've lost the spirit
You can bet that I believe
It's just hard being happy
Cause you can't hug a memory

I hope heaven has a snow globe
That you could look into
And see all your family
That's still crying over you

If the water was our teardrops
We'd fill it to the top a hundred times
Our Christmas wish consists of
You being by our sides

Cause we can't hug a memory
Or look into its eyes
And the only gift we wish for
Wears angel wings tonight

Even though we've lost the spirit
You can bet that we believe
It's just hard being happy
Cause you cant hug a memory

It's so hard being happy.....
Cause you can't hug a memory

This one flows so smoothly I can almost hear the music playing as I'm reading it.

I's all strong but I particularly liked:
Holidays have a way
Of turning, all my highs into lows

and
And the only gift I wish for
Wears angel wings tonight


Well done. It's a winner :)

The feelings sure come through. I really love this:

the only gift we wish for
Wears angel wings tonight

It's wonderful.
