of the congregation
in the splendid ancient church
but as they sing "O Holy Night"
he cannot hold back the tears
then senses her ghost beside him
staring with the most beautiful eyes.
This is his first carol service since
she was cruelly taken from his grasp
but there's a tragic beauty to the scene
as the choir renders this lovely hymn.
He slowly walks out into frosty air
knowing this Christmas will not be the same,
and as the stars shine...he softly calls her name.
