Dear Holiday Season


Dear Holiday Season

Please be nice to everyone around you

Please remember that not everyone can find their joy this time of year

Please remember


Don’t forget about the child that won’t get a Christmas gift

The angel on the tree that didn’t get picked

The mother didn’t get to put their child’s name on the list

Please don’t forget


Don’t forget the mother that lost her child

One of her biggest blessings has left her side

One of her biggest accomplishments is no longer here

Please remember


Be mindful of the children that lost their parent

The person that gave them life

The person that loved them forever

Please don’t forget


Be mindful of the dad that lost his job

For he is the breadwinner of the family

For he is the one that is supposed to do it all

Please remember


I ask you dear Holiday Season

Please don’t be selfish and forget

Forget about the ones who lost their smile

Forget about the ones that just don’t have it all together this year

Be kind 

Be mindful

For some don’t even know why you decided to show up this year

Oh Holiday Season you

Try your hardest to not forget about anyone
