For all of the mothers and fathers that for whatever reason don't get to see their children this Christmas.



       Screaming in silence.

As some sing along to Christmas carols and others go on a shopping spree,

There are those who are the actors, alone and screaming silently.

While we laugh and tease the children asking if they've been bad or good,

There are many parents that are alone, in empty solitude.

At work they seem to be just fine and they will laugh and play,

But inside they know that they will be alone on one more Christmas day.

All they want for Christmas is to see their kids again,

for some it's been so very long they can't remember when.

And so they lie and weave a web of how busy they will be,

but they won't bother to decorate, or even buy a tree.

Another Christmas and the gifts are sent and yet again they will not see,

the happy faces of their kids, nor the gifts under the tree.

My husband doesn't do well during the holidays because of these same feelings. Granted, he has our children, now, which helps... but he has two boys he never gets to see...it's so sad.
I could never know what this feels like!
Love and Peace~

Emotion-packed piece. So moving can't help but cry a little at the deep longings found in every line.

Be well,

Indeed, not having seen my son on christmas morn for 13 years I more than relate to the pain, just hoping he's happy, this year i'll see him boxing day.
Many have no idea of the pain. Thanks for writing this as for certain reasons i can't even write on here anything on this subject matter...

A sad situation for a father that cannot see his children, whether it is Christmas or any day of the week,,, hard on the child as well, a no win situation.

Bless you Glen,
