Red Birds for Christmas by Nuala Molloy Moran

Red Birds for Christmas

You had set up our old birdhouse

Back when the leaves fell on the ground

You stocked it with some fancy birdseed

And some old cracked corn that you found

 

That old oak had remained empty

The icy snow continued to fall

Then you had to leave so quickly

But I understand when duty calls

 

Miracles during this season

Keep my spirits flying so high

And the red birds give me such hope

Oh, I just love to watch them fly

 

It’s hard to be separated 

More so now at Christmas time

Knowing it’s only temporary

Seems to help to ease my mind

 

The Christmas cards we sent out 

Pictured red birds in the snow

Now they are in our own trees

With a scene that’s all aglow

 

Yes, it’s Christmas Eve my darling

And two red birds are in the tree

I wish you were at the door now

You’re the only one I want to see

 

Miracles during this season

Keep my spirits flying so high

And the red birds give me such hope

Oh, I just love to watch them fly

Oh, I just love to watch them fly

 

Yes, it’s Christmas Eve my darling

And two red birds are in the tree

I wish you were at the door now

You’re the only one I want to see

You’re the only one I want to see
