Christmas Swag
A Letter To Santa
Christmas Swag

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
That wasn't there before.

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 neighbor 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?"

"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.
