Coming from a nursing background, it was quite palpable how many deaths occurred at Christmas time, this was reiterated to me after talking to a clients sister (I wrote this the night before)  who said it was a sad time for her family as her mother died on the 28th 3 years ago....


Christmas mourning. Draft. RogersonLB


V1
The strobing lights on the fresh cut tree
Reflecting in the tinsel wraps
Somehow in time with licks of flame

Crackle of those chestnut skins
Mark the moment our yuletide begins

Chorus
Tomorrow we'll be Christmas mourning
Tomorrow we'll be Christmas mourning
13 nails on the fireplace
6 Stockings hanging down
Tomorrow will be Christmas mourning

V2
Traditions mean we now raise our glass
Remembering those recently passed - along with
Family and friends we miss so much

Chorus
Tomorrow we'll be Christmas mourning
Tomorrow we'll be Christmas mourning
13 nails on the fireplace
6 Stockings hanging down
Tomorrow will be Christmas mourning
