Christmas Gifts-Stars and Diamonds

What meaningful Christmas gifts shall I buy?
 The Heavenly star symbolise Christ's birth
 So, ear studs with hanging stars I can try
 As the candle for light, Jesus for world
 A golden candle stand will just be right
 As wreath for love, Fir tree for evergreen
 Green shade dress can keep you level-headed

 While shopping I see stars, cakes and almonds
 A Star emerged within, strummed my heart's string
 "Buy three presents, studded and crafted with diamonds
 A beautiful necklace, earrings and golden ring
 to make your loved one feel high-spirited"

 Bought them and informed you about the three
 You said, "Diamond starry things with out you?
 God sent Christ, fulfilled his promise to set us free
 Christmas means fulfilling a promise which is due
 Dear, please come home to make me light-hearted"

 Getting leave is hurdle in the Forces
 Lucky me, now my leave has been approved
 Coming home with the stored love resources
 To have a wonderful Christmas with you
 and to say hello to the friends we know
 Humming Annie's other song here I come
 Stop being po-faced and low-spirited
