Think of Those (It’s Christmas Time)

Think of Those (It’s Christmas Time) written and spoken over the beautiful Carol ‘O Holy Night.’

 

It’s Christmas time
PLEASE think of those,
With little income to dispose
On yuletide goodies, festive treats,
Toys and gifts, or even sweets.

For some families Christmas will intrude
As they can ill afford to buy their food,
Clothe their children, heat their home,
Or for some it’s on the streets they’ll roam.

It’s Christmas time
PLEASE think of those,
Who’s loved ones vanish and know ones knows
Without a trace, but just in case,
The posters placed to show their face.

For some families Christmas is a chore
When they have children out at war,
Will prayers be answered, will fighting cease
With siblings back and in one piece,

It’s Christmas time
PLEASE think of those
Whom through a loss their life has froze,
Past festive times, memories taunt,
With perfect moments back to haunt.

For some their Christmas feels a sham
With thoughts that most don’t give a damn,
Low in spirits and without any cheer
In isolation they hide in fear,

It’s Christmas time
PLEASE think of those
When the crackers pull and the vino flows,
As we tuck into our festive meal,
Let’s think of others and how they feel.

So this Christmas time let’s think of those
And share our love in the hope it grows,
Let’s sprinkle joy, deliver peace
And pray for suffering now to cease!
