For many of us, this day has one bittersweet quality: at least one empty chair.

The Missing

We gather round the table,
But a chair is empty now.
A one we loved so dearly,
No longer in the here and now

Sailor on the winter sea,
Drifting on the far-off waves
And I scan out past the lighthouse lights
To let you know we’ve saved a place

And oh, we cross the drifting snow
Caravans across the void
Even though you are not here,
I recall you unalloyed

Sailor on the winter sea,
Drifting on the far-off waves
And I scan out past the lighthouse lights
To let you know we’ve saved a place

We’ll hold on to the memories,
In Yules to pass and yet to be
Though we’re lost and far apart,
The tower’s lamp alights my heart

Sailor on the winter sea,
Drifting on the far-off waves
And I scan out past the lighthouse lights
To let you know we’ve saved a place

Oh you know we’ve saved a place
Don’t you know we’ve saved a place?

“The Missing”

This song is very warming to all those who have lost a loved one.
An empty chair at Christmas is a very bitter pill to swallow.
This song means a lot to me.

So … A big thank you to Admiral Bob and Javolenus.
