    Christmas time is lots of fuss.
    Lots to do in the Christmas rush
    But do you ever stop for a little time.
    To think of those who lost their lives.

    Those ones who fought with all their might
    Those ones who sadly lost the fight
    Those ones we hold so dear and true
    Who we miss all year through

    Every light on a tree,
    Reminds us of a person who was close to thee
    A person who we hold so dear in our heart
    The death of this person drove our world apart

    We celebrate Christmas with heavy minds
    And think every minute of happier times.
    But we celebrate it all the same.
    But Christmas is never the same again.

    After the death of those we love
    Who sit and watch us from above
    As we raise our glasses on high
    We it to the happier times.

    When the people we speak about
    Were here to scream and shot
    And play the silly games we play
    Oh how we thing of that day

    These days are full of fear
    As we can't spend Christmas with the ones so dear
    We light a candle as we sit down
    To eat the turkey crown.
    Afterwards to the crem we go.
    To lay a rose for each lost soul.

    Then back to grandma and grandads house
    Where the boys all mess about
    Then we may sing a Christmas song
    Lights out as the day is gone.
    We all sit back and sigh.
    Goodbye Christmas goodbye.

    awww that is really heartly darlin

    my mam always makes me go to church around christmas and there is a part of one of the masses where the christmas tree lights are all put on. and people pay money to the chuch charity for a past love one to have their name read out. and each light on the tree is one persons name. it is such a sweet thing and some thing my mam has done for several years.

    this poem made me think about that.
