depression lonliness, Christmas.

Will you remember those less fortunate at Christmas?

A sombre day for Christmas,

as the Yule fire softly glows,

it's about those who have less,

like the snowman;s frozen toes.

While there is jubilation,

and smiles light up the dwelling,

those with cold expectation,

sneer at tummy's swelling.

Among the frozen footfalls,

a shadow stands alone,

to him no cheery hearth calls,

to warm his aching bones.

Family's make up the happy throng,

they warmly stand together,

but this shadow simply don't belong,

cast aside in freezing weather.

Lights and tinsel everywhere,

choirs sing about a manger,

hearts of love and happy cheer,

forget about the stranger.

To him this time is unaccessible,

no respite from other's good will,

alone with his thoughts regrettable,

in the shadows standing quite still.

On the breeze mulled wine is yummy,

though in anothers hand does sway,

imagination to fill his tummy,

cold looks send him away.

So who is this forgotten interloper,

who watches from afar,

he is just another unfortunate hoper,

in the shadows below a frozen star.

Come in from the cold, stranger.

Take a bowl of warm soup and a warm bread roll;

Let them warm your bones, and

Tell me your story, unburden your soul.

Don't stand outside in the freezing cold,

Come inside and warm yourself by the fire;

It's Christmas time and there's always room for more,

Tell us your story and let us lift you higher.

For our warmth is given by the Lord;

He ensures there's enough food for all,

He gives love to all his children;

Let us share it will you. Enter our loving hall.

I love your poem. It's very touching. I'm not much good at writing poetry, but since you took the time to write a poem, I wanted to try my best to reply.

Don't stand afar, rune. What would you like to talk about?
