A Tear For Christmas
Christmas comes but once each year
by Owain Glyn
I beg from each of you a tear;
A tear for the homeless whose bed is the floor
And a tear for the child who's embroiled in a war
A tear for the prisoner locked in his cell
And a tear for the gaoler who minds him, as well
A tear for the starving who've no food to eat
And a tear for the friendless with no one to greet
A tear for the orphan with no one to care
And a tear for the lover who sinks in despair.
Then open your presents, eat hearty and well
But save a tear for poor Lucifer, down there in hell! !
