You know how some country western songs just make you sob about the lost job/lost wife/lost dog/whatever? And how some Christmas songs have this kind of nostalgic painful pang? What if we combined that power!
“If We Make it Through December”
Or, Johnny Cash “Christmas as I Knew It”
This is really REALLY hard! But I think I have to go for Johnny Cash, it’s essentially a blank verse poem, and it’s lovely.
