It’s that time of year again, when everybody seems to be talking of Christmas dinner, shopping for presents, and spending time with their families. But not everybody loves this time of year.
For some it is a lonely time.
It’s getting close to Christmas Day
And I keep hearing people say
You must me cheerful, must have fun,
Festive cheer to everyone!
The children smile and get excited
As trees and lights and gifts are sighted.
Parties start and glasses clink.
But does anybody stop to think?
What of those people, all alone,
No family to call their own?
They watch from sidelines, on TV,
How happy others seem to be.
No presents underneath their tree,
Where are their smiles?
Who’s there to see?
Now I don’t want to spoil your fun,
But Christmas is for everyone!
So cook your turkey, trim your tree,
Eat enough for two or three!
And after dinner, think a while
Of someone who deserves to smile.
One simple act of kindness shared
Will show them that somebody cared,
Pick up your phone and make that call
Merry Christmas, one and all.
