Papers & Boxes

Was it a night like this when you were born
The sky painted dark, but the stars so clear
While you were sharing with the animals their room
Did they smile and look at you
Like they do in the coloring books, and cartoons,
And I wish that I could’ve held you
I wish that you would hold me now
And I wish I could’ve carried you
Just like you carry me…
 
So here we are 
Around this Christmas tree
It seems so out of place
The little one in straw and hay
And the beautiful papers and boxes
It’s so lovely to receive
Did we forget the one, baby savior king
I believe
 
And I wish that I could’ve held you
I wish that you would hold me now
And I wish I could’ve carried you
Just like you carry me…
 
A song by my college friend Marty Shaughnessy
