A Christmas List of Love

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 its 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 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 they 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
