The flame crackled and popped near my feet
I looked at the way the light danced on his features
As I was wrapped tight in his embrace
I couldn’t think of a place I would rather be
This truly was the best Christmas yet
I wanted to stay in this wonderful place for always
To keep myself wrapped in the beauty of this moment
Outside the wind whipped at the windows
Reminding us of the colder weather that was out there waiting
The magic of our experience was inside these four walls
And outside our bubble of contentment, the world was lingering
So for now, we took full advantage of our time together
And enjoyed every breath in each others arms
For memories can’t be bottled
But they can be held forever in our hearts
