December's Gone 

This is one I wrote back in 2014 about how the giving season seems to end after the holidays...be sure to always look out for others, no matter the season. The late Kent Bilbrey recorded his version of this song. If anyone is interested in giving this song some new life, let me know. :)

 

Cold rain falls downtown 

Yet she wanders on 

As it turns to snow 

Linger till the dawn 

The face was kind 

Offered Christmas cheer 

Now the empty street 

Fills her full of fear 

See, no one is there 

When the nights are long 

Who is going to care 

December’s gone 

A little doll sits 

Near the angel tree 

Wonders about the 

Giving family 

That gave her a smile 

Inside these cold walls 

Every heart needs love 

When you feel so small 

But no one is there 

When nights are long 

Who’s going to care 

December’s gone 

His tired, weathered hands 

Waved down a semi truck 

Driver drops him off 

For a change of luck 

Forgotten and lost 

by the life he knew 

The tours of duty 

Had taken their due 

But no one is there 

When nights are long 

Who’s going to care 

December’s gone
