Christmas was Very Sad

Christmas was very sad


It was my first Christmas

Away from my mother

Away from my extended family.


I give thanks

For one more year of life.

I give thanks always

For looking after my family.

For looking after my friends.

For looking after my son.


I ask in the New Year

Blessings for my family.

Your help to complete my goals.

Your help to realize my dreams.


God, I ask you to look after

My mother

My son

My aunts and uncles

My siblings.
