It's Late But I Still Want To Write

Updated on December 16, 2014

With Christmas Only Ten Days Away

Santa I have all I want

Over the years I have asked for my share

Of presents and things I just had to have

Some I got some I didn't

I still waited till the next year thinking just maybe

It would come

By then I either forgot or was busy thinking of something else

As the years passed

I never forgot the joy and the thrill

Now I watch other children

With that same excitement

Like it was the only thing in the world that mattered

In a world where nothing is perfect

How bad could it be

To believe in the possibility

Now looking back and remembering a time when I was a little older

Thinking it would be impossible for one man to do it all

Bringing all those gifts in one night

Especially in such a small sled

Why do I have to know

I like getting presents and I love opening them on Christmas morning

I also love seeing what my brother gets

I know he would share and that means I just got twice as much

Well I realized at that moment

I want some things to be left unknown

With a little bit of doubt

Maybe hoping what if ?

Would life be that bad with a jolly man in red

Giving to everyone a little bit of love

So neatly wrapped up in a package

It really wasn't about the gifts after all

Because if it was I would remember every gift I have ever gotten

Instead I remember what really counts

My family being all together

Laughing and having so much fun

Thank you mom and dad

For letting me enjoy my childhood

Filled with dreams and fantasies

Believing in Santa Clause and the wonder

Of how great it is

To feel so special

Think of all the families that celebrate

A time for peace and harmony

Why does it have to stop ?

When it made you feel so good inside

After all these years

How could I still feel the same feeling ?

This time without one gift

I think there is more to Santa than what meets the eye

He has given me a chance to enjoy

All that is real and all that is make believe

      Christmas is for love and family and friends. It's time to remember why we celebrate and that Jesus was born. As for Santa Claus I've always believed in him.

      easylearningweb It was so nice for you to comment and I am thrilled that you came back to read my comment. I realize everyone is busy during the holidays and to see someone take time out of their day means more than what I can say in words. Thank you and pleasant dreams.

      easylearningweb Santa created a way to bring us together. So we could make time to forget all the harshness in life and remember the good. tendo I have to give Santa all the credit for this one. Thank you both for your wonderful comments. May your holidays be filled with towers of love with family and friends. Have a good day.
