Let Christmas be a joyous time

Let Christmastime be joyful

Quiet now this Christmas morn

No baubles on the tree adorn

How sad the feeling that’s around

When jingle belles make not a sound.

No presents wrapped or candle lit

No Santa for the costume fit

No stocking on the fireplace put

Nobody for the cake to cut.

The reason why is oh so clear

A young child cringes low wth fear

In his head that aching pain

His parents fighting once again.

Let’s think about this tale of woe

Do not ignore, an interest show

Try now to stop domestic violence

Welcome in the world of silence.
