Bittersweet Christmas


Janelle Leek

Travis and Ilya, I love you guys

This year Christmas will be bittersweet
I don't know when next we'll meet
I may never see you again
You're off to war, cousin and friend
The Army and Marines are taking you away from me
I will cry as you cross that sea
Could be I never again hold you in my arms
But always know I hold you close to my heart
Don't take them away, I'll cry
Gladly would I send myself so you don't die
Go in safety and blessed be
I know you go to keep us free
