Is Christmas for children?
To the child that’s unloved at Christmas
The celebrations just offer cruel blow,
The lights and the tinsel, the baubles
Serve only to remind of a joy they don’t know.
And the weight of the cold empty feeling
With the sisters, named rejection and pain,
Turn the happiest day into saddest
As it pours both hope and reserve down the drain.
To the child that’s alone at Christmas
The dream of a home feels a whole world away,
And the wish of a family to love you
Doesn’t come true and so you cease to believe, cease to pray.
And the ache in your soul it grows bigger
And the loss that you feel breaks your heart,
And the emptiness it beats and it pounds you
And the mounting fears will not from you depart.
To the child that’s unwanted at Christmas
The thought of night time just makes you feel sick,
The thought of being ripped open like a present
Then blamed and despised and then beaten with stick.
Of this there will be no reprieve, no end to this evil
There will be no way out, no help will come,
There will be no other choice but to suffer in silence
And heaven help you child, if you try to run.
To the child that’s abandoned at Christmas
Left alone in a world with no love, no care,
Left alone to fend for itself
Left alone full of heartbreak, despair.
There will be no presents to unwrap
No tasty feast, no carols round the tree,
No snuggling up watching favourite Christmas movies
No laughter, no friends, no family to go and see.
And yet though they cry throughout the world in their millions
Unloved, alone, unwanted, abandoned, who cares?
All the good people who insist Christmas is for the children
I think what they meant to say is… its just Christmas for theirs?
