Red, Red Robin

robin in the snow
Little robin, you remind me
Of Christmas so long, long ago
When childhood meant sweet memories
And playtime meant fun in the snow

Trying to stay in distant dreams
Isn’t the best way to move forward
I know I’m God’s beautiful child
But does my new heart trust the Lord

Red, red robin, this hold you have
I’ve not seen you for so, so long
Please let go of my struggling heart
And then I’ll burst forth with His song

I’ll never forget you, little friend
You hold time’s faded photographs
It’s time for me to dry my tears
And be released so I can laugh
