Our Last Christmas Eve (In A Place We Called Our Home)

I know it’s only made of wood and stone

But it’s the first place we called our home

It’s where we went when you became my wife

Where our girls grew up and learned about life

Where we had safety after a hard day

And it’s where we came when we lost our way

Where memories were more than the past

Where I thought our love would always last

Now there’s a for sale sign in the yard

And I never thought it would be this hard

To say goodbye to some wood and stone

And I never thought I’d feel this alone

In a place we called our home

We smile through our last Christmas Eve

And I really wish I could believe

Santa could save our love and our home

I watch you sitting there reading your book

You catch me and smile with a knowing look

Sometimes I swear you can read my mind

Wanting to give it another try, but it’s time

I see all the presents under the tree

But the only gift I want is for you to love me

That’s a miracle only God can provide

Cause we’re already living separate lives

Now there’s a for sale sign in the yard

And I never thought it would be this hard

To say goodbye to some wood and stone

And I never thought I’d feel this alone

In a place we called our home

We smile through our last Christmas Eve

And I really wish I could believe

God could save our love and our home

I wonder if these floors will still creak in a few years

I wonder if these walls will remember our laughs and tears

These windows never quite kept out the cold

There are so many stories left untold

Now there’s a for sale sign in the yard

And I never thought it would be this hard

To say goodbye to some wood and stone

And I never thought I’d feel this alone

In a place we called our home

We smile through our last Christmas Eve

And I really wish I could believe

We could save our love and our home

  1. I hear your heartbreak, for me so much change since last Christmas, after thirty years of marriage I had to file for divorce after putting a protection order in place against my husband who has abuse me and abuse our older daughter who is chronically ill and in a wheelchair, I found out he was also poisoning her. After twenty three years living in my home and watching it being built in 1999 once my younger daughter graduates from high school in June, I too will say good-bye to the home I have come to know. I have cried so many tears for these many months as well as years hoping and praying that our marriage would work, how can you change a man that is into porn, having many affairs over our marriage, drugs. I know in my heart that God has a better plan for me and my daughters, to hear my oldest laugh once again and her doctors have hope of her living (I am not planning her funeral) I remember the words from Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, plans not of harm, but plans for hope and a future, we are in this difficult journey with our Lord. I will be praying for you as well
