A Christmas Poem – Remember the Fallen

A Christmas Poem – Sing Along

A Christmas Poem 2016 – Remember the Fallen. Written by David Peterson, the poem takes the journey through 2016 as we head towards the most precious day. We must remember the sacrifices our forefathers made to allow us to live the lives we live. Christmas is a time for peace and unity, harmony and positive spirit. The recent fallen in Germany must never be forgotten, what the evil that oozes as an enemy with-in can be defeated, we must stay strong and avoid percussion of the innocent.

A Christmas Poem – Remember the Fallen

Christmas comes but once a year

It brings much joy and festive cheer

It’s time to play, to drink and sing

For it’s our tradition, that we bring.

Through mass migration this year has changed

So many innocents hurt and slain

We welcome you with open arms,

In spite integration not always on the cards

Christmas is a time not for fear

It’s a time for fun and family here

Enjoy your time and fear not

Because our fallen won’t be forgot.

Out brother in arms in faraway lands

Thank you all for making a stand

If only more would stay and fight

The war would be won before the night

Refugees welcome we feel your pain

Heal you must take time to regain

But if you come to destroy our lands

Know this Christmas we make our stand.

A Christmas Poem – Remember the Fallen

Hope you enjoyed the poem, 2017 is a time for a change, this is the time we must unite. Welcoming those truly in need, offering support and integration, but we must not fool ourselves, few will come wishing to undertake evil deeds, and we must support our police, our communities and our families, also write to our local MP’s to ensure proper vetting.
