~ A Christmas Never Forgotten ~
Many years ago, when I was still a teen
I had a Christmas I wish had never been
In a city all alone, with no one to share
A room, if you can imagine, so totally bare

No family or friends, all by myself
Only a can of beans on my food shelf
A book and not the bible was all I had
The weather was miserable all was so sad

Everyone I knew had families to be with
Tears streaming down, alone I did sit
I tell you the truth, I will not tell a lie
On that day all I wanted to do was die

Now years later I think of that day
Wondering what I can do for others, okay
The Lord did help me get through it alone
I am very blessed to now have a home

So as the prayer says to do what you can
Help a person who by themselves can't stand
Invite them in for a meal and a prayer
Show them that God knows they are there

Christmas is a time to celebrate His coming
The words that He taught was that of loving
To share your wealth as little as it may be
Make someone's Christmas a time to believe

Just a little charity for someone all alone
Can go a long way to help them be reborn
Learn that God's spirit is one that is true
Share your belief and love with someone new

Merry Christmas to all of you is my wish
That you put out for a stranger a spare dish
Don't let them have one that I did endure
Show them your belief in God is really pure
