Hail is falling,

Engines are stalling

Its a dark and ominous Christmas Eve

Grave sites host mothers,

Children, and lovers

Falling angels sing as loved ones grieve

Candle-lit churches,

Snow covered hearses

Stained glass shattered on the floor

Ocean of tears,

Built up over years

Angry waves crash against the shore

Sorrow-filled voices,

Mothers without choices

Bodies beaten and numb

Dark clouds overhead,

No one speaks, nothings said

They all know the horrors to come

Frozen wind cuts through clothes,

Biting skin, and numbing toes

Children shiver on abandoned streets

Letters sent to the North Pole,

Holding secrets of the soul

Turn to ash as theyre burned for their heat

Sunlight slowly dies,

Air fills with muffled cries

Heads bow as lost souls pray

And throughout this tortured land,

Families stand hand in hand

And await a bright new Christmas day.
