All I Want For Christmas Is My Sailor...

I've been hounded for the last couple weeks now about sending out a 'wish list' to my family so they know what to buy me for Christmas. How do I tell them that all I want is for my future husband to be home and in my arms, and not half way across the world in Guam..? I know we're not officially married yet, but this honestly feels like it would have been our 'first Christmas' together, and he won't even be her for it. We had to do an early Thanksgiving with his family so he could celebrate that somehow, but at least he was in the states. Now he's over 3000 miles away in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and I don't know how to deal with this. All I want is to be with him for the holidays. Seeing all my friends in their new marriages buying their first trees together as couples and decorating their places with lights and ornaments isn't helping. We are sending him a giant box of things from everyone from both his family and mine, as a sort of early Christmas care package, but it's not the same as having him here for the holidays with the rest of us.

Greeting cards have all been sent, the Christmas rush is through
But I still have one wish to make, a special one for you

Merry Christmas darling, we're apart that's true
But I can dream and in my dreams, I'm Christmas-ing with you

Holidays are joyful, there's always something new
But every day's a holiday when I'm near to you
The lights on my tree, I wish you could see, I wish it every day
The logs on the fire fill me with desire to see you and to say

That I wish you Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, too
I've just one wish on this Christmas Eve, I wish I were with you

Logs on the fire fill me with desire to see you and to say
That I wish you Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, too
I've just one wish on this Christmas Eve, I wish I were with you
I wish I were with you.
