Home For Christmas

 I'll Be Home For Christmas makes us aware that songs need not be complex to stir our emotions.

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

The longing to go home for Christmas brings out the child in many of us during the holiday season.

Going Home For Christmas

by Edgar Guest

He little knew the sorrow that was in his vacant chair, he never guessed they'd miss him, or he'd surely have been there. He couldn't see his mother or the lump that filled her throat, or the tears that started falling as she read his hasty note.  And he couldn't see his father, sitting sorrowful and dumb, or he never would have written that he thought he couldn't come.
He little knew the gladness that his presence would have made, and the joy it would have given, or he never would have stayed away. He didn't know how hungry his mother had grown once again to see her baby and to claim him for her own.  He didn't guess the meaning of his visit Christmas Day or he never would have written that he couldn't get away.
He couldn't see the fading of the cheeks that once were pink, and the silver in the tresses, and he didn't stop to think how the years are passing swiftly, and next Christmas it might be there would be no home to visit and no mother dear to see. He didn't think about it -- I'll not say he didn't care.  He was heedless and forgetful or he'd surely have been there.
Are you going home for Christmas? Have you written you'll be there?  Going home to kiss your mother and to show her that you care?  Going home to greet your father in a way to make him glad? Just sit down and write a letter. It will make their heart strings hum, with a tune of perfect gladness, if you'll tell them that you'll come.
