Overseas for Christmas

Across the seas and lands so vast
across the planet's spin
Your memory still lingers here
our thoughts still reel you in
For Christmas looms in distant sky
it races from above
To turn this world around again
and remind us all of love
And we really have been missing you
your smiles and sparkling eyes
And we're wishing you were here with us
beneath the southern skies
For the Christmas sun is looming
and you know it's peaceful here
The kookaburra's laughing
and there's just no sense of fear
And we hope that you are healthy
and the stars your own to sight
And that comets race across your sky
and turn your day to night
For the night sky is so brilliant
in the outback here, out back,
Where the stockmen will be singing
along the stock route track
It's a merry merry Christmas
and a wish that you were here
For the Christmas sun is looming
and it's still so peaceful here.

That's another gem from the pen of the Heart Poet. I love his writing and the way he makes the flow so smooth. What a tremendous gift and to use it so lovingly just defines the word creative, doesn't it ?~!
