My teenaged son has taken up songwriting this year. I shared a few lines in the Special Needs Homeschooling Facebook group, since I knew they would understand. The struggle of any mom wanting their kids to have friends is very real. You are not alone moms in wanting this for your kids.

Sharing in the group provided an eye opening chance for my son to realize that there are many other kids out there struggling to find a friend. This is an expression of that desire to have a friend, my son hates math but it worked for the song. He is currently putting music to these lyrics.

All I Want For Christmas is a Friend

Dear Santa this year I want something different, not a Mac I already have two of them. No, this year I want something different.

Chorus

All I want for Christmas is a friend, I’m super lonely and lowly my only friends are pretend.
All I want for Christmas is a friend, Oh Santa can’t you help me find a friend.

Verse 1

I wish I had a friend instead everybody calls me weird and I feel like I have disappeared.
My Mom is my only follower and I have 0 likes with many dislikes.
Nobody ever texts me and asks me to hang out.
Instead I’m always left-out.

Chorus

All I want for Christmas is a friend, I’m super lonely and lowly my only friends are pretend.
All I want for Christmas is a friend oh Santa please help me find a friend.

Verse 2

I don’t understand why no one likes me, I talk about popular things like Advanced Quantum Mechanics and Linear Algebra.
I always sit by myself at the lunch table reading my English books, While everyone gives me weird looks.
Don’t you see Santa why I need a friend? So I made a list of what I want in one: 1. you must like math. 2 Gotta like video games. 3 um that’s it I guess.

Chorus

All I want for Christmas is a friend, I’m super lonely and lowly my only friends are pretend,
All I want for Christmas is a friend, Oh Santa can’t you help me find a friend.

Verse 3

Once I asked a girl to be my friend she not even if it’s the bitter end.
My teachers hate me too because I answer every question and correct them a lot.
They look at me like I’m pond scum and say be quiet please.
Oh Santa please please help me I’m dying of loneliness. Oh I need a friend.

    Bless him. I was a poet/songwriter instead of a blogger/non-fiction writer in my youth. I poured lots of sad thoughts into rhyme and felt the better for it. I hope God brings him a kindred soul for the New Year.

  2. Your son did a good job expressing the desire of his heart.
    It’s rough growing up in a world where we just don’t fit. Thanks for sharing his words as encouragement to other mums and kids.
