Blue Bells

32f4220d033aad97074b811865b765fe

Amid the cheery christmas songs

Jingle bells and churches dongs

Ladies proposed to by their man

Families together making plans

The festive parties of end of year

Children playing with no fear

But some folks feel sadness deep

Crying quietly in their sleep

Memories of a loved one lost

Aloneness creeping on like frost

Chilling their bones despite the heat

Of winters fire or rum they sneak

Others fearful how to provide

Or even how they will survive

Their wallets empty the cupboards bare

The children look with hungry stares

Can Santa please remember me

Is all they sing with desperate pleas

Some even sleep out in the night

Woken by a drunken fight

Casual compassion is sprinkled spare

By walkers by that think they care

They offer concern like a fast food snack

That fills their conscious karma sack

This time of year is no different here

The only change is the christmas cheer

Show love support and understanding

Be tolerant of those that are falling

A solitary branch supports the bird

Its song of life must be heard
