COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS:
I wish you all a Happy Christmas,
Enjoy the Festive Season.
I will write again afterwards,
Loneliness is the reason.
Not even one Christmas card,
From old friends or family.
I no doubt there are many in this situation,
I don't want any pity.
It's just this will be the 4th Christmas alone.
Ordinary days are no fun.
But I thought I'd write today
Before the countdown to Christmas has begun.
I will be thinking of you,
To friends both sides of the pond.
Will write after the holidays,
To friends who share the writing bond.
