Merry Christmas Mama

I post this every year in tribute

Merry Christmas Mama

Merry Christmas mama
I'm sorry there's no tree
And I feel kind of bad
With no present to you from me

Merry Christmas mama
You should see the lights
They're so beautiful this year
All of them so bright

Merry Christmas mama
I'm blowing you a kiss
Trusting that an Angel
Will see it doesn't miss

Merry Christmas mama
From me, your youngest child
Clutching tight to memories
Of the many times you smiled

Merry Christmas mama
I still love you so
Sorry for the tears
But it's time for me to go

Merry Christmas mama
I'm trying to be brave
But it is my first Christmas
To be standing at your grave

I miss you mama......

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
I wrote this the first Christmas after my mother died of Cancer. She always loved the Christmas lights and I would drive her around before Christmas to look at them.
