It's Christmas time
She's just turned 89
She's cold and all alone
She remembers when her family and friends used to grace her home
Now everyone has gone
She's the only one.
No gifts under her tree
All alone she will be with just memories
Of how Christmas used to be
No turkey or mince pies
Just lonely tears in her eyes.

    makes me feel sorry for this woman .. i can imagine being lonely at an old age is not nice at all .. the sadness speaks so clearly through this
