Twas the night before Christmas

When we children should dream

But all I can hear is Mummy’s loud scream

 

Daddy is hitting her again and again

This year I hope

That the blood does not stain

 

Not one of us kids

Dare make a sound

For fear that Daddy’s violence

Would double and rebound

 

We silently prayed

That mummy would be ok

And that somehow she would live

To see Christmas Day

 

So please Father Christmas

Tell me if you got my list?

I want Mummy to be safe

From Daddy’s big fist

 

Can you bring me enough hope?

So Mummy does not live in fear

Let this be the last violent New Year

 

For I don’t want to wake up

On a cold Christmas Day

To see Mummy in a coffin

Being taken away.
