Dear Santa - From Dad's Point of View

Submitted by Tim Taliaferro

DEAR SANTA,

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 you 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.
