What a wonderful thing that it would be be,
To have a jolly old family Christmas at Sea.
It’s finally December you see, A glorious time for festivity.
Singing Christmas song,
Whilst the bells from land ring a ding dong.
We hope many presents Santa shall bring,
Despite there being no chimney or ceiling.
Stuffing their faces with mince pies,
The children unusually quiet,
Trying to repent for the last year’s white lies,
Im order to not miss out on gifts and surprise.
Adults drink cider and mulled wine,
Lossening their belts,
Preparing to heavily dine devine.
Music now blasts from the radio,
Playing all the classic songs.
Feet tap under the table to the familiar beat,
As candid vibrations jiggle from seat to seat.
Turkey and all the trimmings,
A toast to new beginnings.
This Christmas spent at Sea,
Was perfect for that family,
And everything they wanted it to be.
As Christmas is nigh,
I look up at Santa’s map,
The starlit sky,
Where he shall sleigh his mighty sack.
December is here,
I feel nothing but cold,
The young ones full of cheer,
Ba Humbug I am getting old,
But as Christmas is near,
Children write their lists,
In hope of getting many gifts,
To be bestowed upon them December 25th!
Happy Christmas 🎅 one and all. December can be a lonely time for anyone and everyone, be Kind and make it known that you care for the good people in your life. From a mental health point of view, I have struggled, relapsed and been in Crisis over many Christmas periods. I was in a mental health hospital through the Christmas period a few years back, I remember being permitted hospital leave on December 25th and relaxing with my Mum, Step Dad, Sister and late Grandfather, it was magical. While the lucky ones enjoy lavish gifts, the even luckier ones enjoy friends, family and festive cheer. Enjoy your Christmas but be mindful of those on the streets, the elderly who are lonely and feel forgotten, the sick children in hospital and their parents and families, the lonely, the suicidal and unwell. Please share this link, it is easy to forget the unfortunate during the hustle, bustle, preparation and celebration of Christmas. A little acknowledgement and a smile may be small and effortless to you but mean the world to another.
Merry Christmas From No One xxx
