I want 'I love you' for Christmas
All I want for Christmas is a word, a hug, a kiss
From those I know who love me,
And those I wish they did.
Presents and materials are very nice,
But I'm never better grateful
When I hear an 'I love you.'
Those simple words astonish me
And make me feel so great.
They're better than acting kind,
Or laying junk food on my plate.
They give me the warmth deep inside
Of hot water in the shower,
And always, always mean the most
When they're from your heart's deep power.
A hug to me is comfort.
A kiss, I may say, nice,
But seeing you and knowing you
Are all I could ever want to do.
For Christmas is for giving,
And though we like the gifts,
The thing that really matters most
Is 'I love you' from your lips.
