As Long as I Get to Keep Loving You

Every year, a recipe so simple,
candy cane kisses and silver tinsel,
wrapped in your arms,
not a moment apart,
the snow angels we made last night
glistening in the sun outside

The way your glasses fog up
when you come in from the cold,
and how you play carols on the piano
by the light of the fire’s glow

You light me up like a Christmas tree
with feelings so deep turning evergreen
I don’t need to wake up Christmas morning
to something new as long as I get
to keep loving you

Every year decorating the cottage with lights,
Santa’s sleigh on the roof and snowball fights,
wrapped in your arms
in my warmest scarf,
our footprints in the snow
with nowhere else to go

The way you laugh
when you’re telling a joke,
talking with your hands
and your eyes filled with hope

You light me up like a Christmas tree
with feelings so deep turning evergreen
I don’t need to wake up Christmas morning
to something new as long as I get
to keep loving you
