Happy Holiday

Everyone at Gone Gaming wishes you a wonderful holiday season full of love and laughter.

The following is an excerpt from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “The Christmas Attic” album, printed with the kind permission of TSO. I think is has a beautiful message for everyone no matter what their belief.

Dream Child (A Christmas Dream)

In the night
Was the dark.
In the dark
Was the dream.
In the dream
Was the Child
And myself
There unseen.

And all that night the snow came down
To heal the scars our lives had found
And the dreams that lay broken.

And there upon a bridge of dreams
Across the night we walked unseen
With no words ever spoken.

And then on through that night
We did walk for a while
And our steps turned to blocks
And the blocks turned to miles.

Then we followed a path
For as far as we could
Till we found ourselves there
In an evergreen woods.

There were thousands of candles
Upon every tree.
It was beautiful
But there was one mystery,
For with all of those candles
You must understand
That the only one lit
Was now in that Child’s hand.

And there upon that Christmas scene
The candle wax of melted dreams
And the years they had taken.

And as the snow did gently fall,
He one by one relit them all
Till each dream was awakened.

And there to that light
That young Child showed to me
All the things that he dreamt,
All the things that might be;
How for everything given,
That something is gained.
Strike one match in the dark
And all the world’s not the same.

And when I awoke, well the Child he was gone
But somewhere in my mind
I believe he lives on.
And somewhere in my life
Between here and the end,
On a long winter’s night
I will dream him again.
