Do They Know It's Christmas? - Poem by Lyn Paul

All I want for Christmas
Is a day on my own
I have so much to do
I will not feel alone

The sun will shine
I will walk on the rise
Along the beach
I will splash in the tide

I have a great book to finish
And a new DVD
So many pictures to sort
Beside the Festive Tree

I have music to play
To get me in the mood
Such a selection
Of mouth watering food

To be alive feels like Christmas
And it is another day
Give some thought to those less fortunate
Too many. Their days are grey

The meaning is lost
At Christmas time
It's no more about Baby Jesus
It's about spending that dime

So spare a thought for those
Who have no one who cares
Do they know its Christmas?
Can we all say a prayer

    we should be compassionate every day of the year, not just on Christmas!


    I have music to play
    To get me in the mood
    Such a selection
    Of mouth watering food............if i weren't married, i'd invite myself over to join you! !

    Christmas...... Peace on earth, goodwill to all men.......... the ideal.
    Christmas.......... Commercialism gone mad.......................the reality.

    A lovely, thoughtful poem, Lyn. I think, in general, we have forgotten what the true concept of Xmas is.

    Christmas is an incredible festively celebrated awakening.....beautifully presented poem and very much informative. To be alive feels like Christmas
    And it is another day
