Not All Christmases Are Merry (with audio)

Not all Christmases are merry 
some Decembers aren’t very bright 
If you’re experiencing sorrow or pain 
be at peace, hear it said, ‘it’s alright’

You don’t have to force cheerfulness 
it can be sad to look at the lights
Some Christmas memories aren’t jolly 
and it’s not enjoyable to see the sights

Perhaps you’re lonely, far from lovers
or someone close this year has died
You may have money or alcohol worries
or you’re ill and your body is tired

This time of year can be difficult
there’s no need to feel anger or shame
While some people revel in the season
some carry sorrows too deep to name
