    I saw you say it was fictional at another comment. That really took the poems power away knowing its just an imagining of some holiday pain. Especially with the title being in first person aswell as the poem. Hope you had a great holiday! :)peace

    Such a heartbreaking memory is one that would be hard to ever forget,....yet also perhaps a tool that helps one appreciate other Christmas's that hopefully shine with love and forgiveness. I'm sad to think you had this happen as a child....and hope now that love always will surround you at Christmas and all year round. Happy New Year Dr. Ram!

    Very sad poem and I'm sure this happens somewhere around the world though this is supposed to be a season of happiness. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas.

    What a sad Christmas tale you tell. The last line is unfortunately often true. Thank you for your kind words on my Jerusalem poem! Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    Oh this is so sad and indicative of the woes of children. A wonderful trip into the soul of the unhappy children who have to deal with often callous parents. It sounds so real and so familiar. Merry Christmas love, Kathy

    Merry Christmas Dr. Ram !! Hope you are enjoying the holidays ! Great write ! Do tell me what gifts Santa gave you !! May this year end with happiness , and lets all welcome the NEW YEAR !! SMILES AND HUGS !! Love <3 Saanvi :))

    It's sad what you went through. I grew up in a time of cynicism towards almost everything, and was told at a young age that Santa didn't exist. I can see for one who truly believed how saddening that experience would be. Great work Dr. Mehta
