Daddy, do I have to go to bed?
Do you want Santa to come?
More than anything else
Then scamper under those covers.
Is he as jolly as they say?
I think you can tell
By the jingle of the bells
By a lightness that surrounds his spirit.
Please read me the little angel story
The one with the gentleness of a fawn
It makes me warm and fuzzy
So tingly by its tenderness.
Can we leave milk and cookies
And some raw , fresh carrots?
This will show our gratitude
For the reindeer pulling a sleigh so far.
The earth is so big and round
However do they do this all in one night ?
From the twinkle of his nose
To a child’s peaceful innocence.
From the softness of snowflakes
Comes a blanket of serenity
I dream of sugar plum thoughts
Of hugs and kisses I wrote on a card.
I wish I was on this journey
Soon I’ll be on one of my own
As I drift off to sleep
I see myself upon a cloud.
One lit up like a Christmas Tree
I know it’s not the gifts
But the love that we share
Which makes this a special moment.
I am a little girl
I believe in what I believe
Because of two sparkly stars
Who cradle me in the chambers of their hearts.
I love by their affections
As this seed was first planted
When I came upon a doorstep
Which has been my happy home throughout all the seasons since.
Thank you Alex for your wonderful Christmas poem 🙂
