Thank you for making Christmas magical once more
At this time of year it can be heart-breaking for mothers who have been through the toughest of times and aren’t able to give their children the Christmas they so long to give them.
Thanks to kind donations and gestures that can be turned around.
This poem was written by a BWP service user whose Christmas was made magical once more, thanks to someone’s generosity.
Your donations mean everything, thank you.
A Christmas Poem
We have an Iceland Christmas platter to share
A new pair of socks each for the kids
Made teddies, using needle and thread
A tree for cheap from the charity shop
Warm blankets, given by a friend
I wanted this Christmas to be so special
The horrible year we’ve had, come to an end
I wish that I could give the children more
That we didn’t just have to make do
But sadly that’s not going to be
Hopefully next year it will
Then came a knock upon my door
A lady with a box full of cheer
“A gift for you and yours, my dear”
I’ve never been so overwhelmed
I shed many a happy tear
Little gifts for the children, essentials for us all.
I’m thankful for these angels
Making Christmas magical once more
Abusive fathers will use their children in a variety of different ways to perpetuate domestic abuse. Using children is highly effective as a way of exerting power and control over their intimate partners or former partners.
