A Letter To Santa

Postby fenwick on Sat Sep 08, 2007 12:29 am

Snowflakes softly falling

Upon your window they play

Your blankets snug around you,

Into sleep you drift away.



I bend to gently kiss you,

when I see that on the floor

there's a letter, neatly written

I wonder who it's for.



I quietly unfold it

making sure you're still asleep,

It's a Christmas list for Santa

one my heart will always keep.



It started just as always

with the toys seen on TV,

A new watch for your father

and a winter coat for me.

But as my eyes read on

I could see that deep inside

there were many things you wished for

that your loving heart would hide.



You asked if your friend Molly

could have another Dad;

It seems her father hits her

and it makes you very sad.



Then you asked dear Santa

if the neighbors down the street

Could find a job, that he might have

some food, and clothes, and heat.



You saw a family on the news

whose house had blown away,

"Dear Santa, send them just one thing

a place where they can stay."



"And Santa, those four cookies that

I left you for a treat,

Could you take them to the children

who have nothing else to eat."



"Do you know that little bear I have

the one I love so dear?

I'm leaving it for you to take

to Africa this year".



"And as you fly your reindeer

on this night of Jesus' birth,

Could your magic bring to everyone

goodwill and peace on earth".



"There's one last thing before you go,

so grateful I would be,

If you'd smile at Baby Jesus

in the manger by our tree."



I pulled the letter close to me'

I felt it melt my heart.

Those tiny hands had written

what no other could impart.



"And a little child shall lead them,"

was whispered in my ear

As I watched you sleep on Christmas Eve

while Santa Claus was here.
