This is a card for anyone who might be struggling at Christmas time. It has a poem inside which I wrote to offer comfort to anyone facing difficulties at this time of year.
The poem was shared by mental health charity Your Voice just before Christmas 2019. It then had over 20000 reshares and thousands of heartbreaking comments from people recently bereaved and those who still struggle with other griefs from the past. I read each comment and in that moment I decided to make this a card which people could send for next Christmas. There were so many comments from people saying how much comfort these words had given them during a difficult time. 50p from each card will be going to Your Voice who provide support and many services to assist women with their mental health journey.
The Poem inside reads:
If Christmas is hard, if you’ve lost someone dear,
Just look in your heart, and you’ll know they’re still here.
The star in the sky, the light falling snow.
The robin outside, it seems like they know.
If this is a time, when you’re struggling through,
Just do what you can, for what matters, is you.
There’s no need to be merry, there’s no need to bright.
Just do what you can, it will all be alright.
