Mom, I wonder if you see the star,

one promised long ago.

Is it brighter from time passed

with a constant glow.

Are you closer to the cradle,

of which no time can rot,

This manger scene, of babe

and birth that never is forgotten.

If in heaven you get to see

all the wonders of that night.

I see your smile in all we love,

and I know you are alright.
