I'll Remember Love

(That’s What Christmas Means To Me) Music & Lyrics by Désirée Goyette

What does Christmas mean to me today?
It isn’t what it used to be
Magical and sweet, taste of candy cane and scent of pine
Family, and promises of joy and peace

Now tears, like winter rain, are falling down
And Santa Claus may never come to town
And as the candles burn,
Toys and tinsel turn to faded memories
I’ll remember love,
‘Cause that’s what Christmas means to me

Younger days and dreams have gone away
And relatives and friends, they move on
Breathing in my heart, scenes, like melodies, play on and on
Every time I’ve loved and laughed and cried - or died

Yet, underneath the snow a rose finds its way
Like lovers find each other’s arms
The present of the past is hoping nothing wrapped in heartache ever lasts

So I’ll remember love,
‘Cause that’s what Christmas means to me
