Peaceful Innocence – by Alex Chornyj

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.
