Not everything has been good,
not everything has been bad,
but throughout the year while usually just ok, Xmas usually makes me sad.
my other kids you see, they are not here – some things I did badly oh so sadly,
but I’m just a mere dad, no wait still a boy, I’ve never grown up – & with my dad gone oh too soon,
I loved and lost, but unless you miss your kids at Xmas, there are some things you will just never learn to understand. The Mom comunity has not actually – physically – helped, but at least I can say why my heart is breaking and why I envy everyone of you for being able to enjoy Xmas. Please, protect your families,a dn all the reasons to fight are really not worth the pain. Learn to love and forgive and forget, because when it all falls over, the pain of not being able to forget is worse than hell.
I wish you all a wonderful happy and joyous time with your families, truly a happy time I pray but for, every year I pay.

  • hopefully things are better next christmas. Co-parenting is not easy.


  • Oh I do hope things start looking up for you. Christmas can be a particularly difficult time of year when things have been tough. Stay strong.


  • That’s a very sad poem. I hope things improve for you


  • It doesn’t matter what has happened , we can always try to move forward and make amends.Don’t give up , a new step everyday .


  • I dont know what to say that can help at this time, other than stay safe over the hoildays. And thank you for reminding us to tresure what we have and how lucky we are ( yes we do need reminding ). Remember with every new year it allows for new beginnings to start afresh in the new year and to make a difference in what can be. Goodluck.


  • Sad to read your poem. Enjoy it how you can.
