When Santa Came

I couldn’t go to sleep on this Christmas I knew Santa would be coming tonight There were noises downstairs, I yelped for joy Could it be him, were his reindeer on the roof I heard talking and a jolly ole laugh But was it really him, I wanted to know for sure I slipped off my bed, walked quietly down the hall I looked at the tree, but I saw nothing But the presents were all there that Santa left And the stockings were stuffed to the brim Not wanting to get caught out of my bed I ran to my room with a giant smile on my face I knew Santa had come, I saw what he left behind I fell asleep that night with the biggest smile And I had the warmest heart that I’ve ever had
