GIVE A THOUGHT
It was a lovely frostie morning
The sun was trying to come through.
Well I thought, it's getting near Christmas
Now what have I got to do.
Send all my friends a greeting card,
And all the little children too.
It's a lovely time at Christmas,
Everyone's merry and bright.
The church bells ring out a merry tune,
And the carols are a pure delight.
The holly and the ivy glow,
As children play in the crisp white snow.
Decorations hang in colourful display,
As the children run to and fro with their sleigh.
I sit in silence and say a prayer,
For those children who are without love and care.
So please give a thought to those near and far,
To make their faces light up like a star.
For in celebrating we sometimes forget,
The unfortunate little children we've never met.
Written by my dear Grandmother aged 92
