A Child's Christmas

  A little boy stayed up one Christmas eve
 Because in Santa Claus he did believe 
 He had heard rumors that Santa didn't exist
 But all of these rumors the lad did dismiss

But as he waited he fell fast asleep
Then was awakened it seemed at around 10:45
And he opened his eyes and took a peek
And there to his amazement and surprise
Santa appeared before his very eyes

He watched closely as the stockings were filled
This wondrous sight did give him a thrill
Then up through the chimney St Nick disappeared
And off he rode with all his reindeer

The little boy smiled, his heart was content
Though a bit sleepy that didn't prevent
him from having a wish come true and a promise kept
He had seen Santa Claus,  in dreams as he slept
