The Forgotten Ones

Posted on Dec 5, 2012


This Christmas time
Let’s not forget
Those that are gone
Or don’t have beds
Those that can’t eat
Or keep warm
Those that are alone
Or whether the storms
The children who fear
A parent or worse
The old pensioners
Who are never heard
Those that fight wars
Or who once did
In far-off places
Lives they give
Many more besides
Who struggle on
For these are
The forgotten ones
