"A Christmas Wish for Santa"
O Santa! it's been very hard to be good all year
and Christmas Eve is nearing for presents 'neath green tree
listening for the sound of your sleigh and eight tiny reindeer
am hoping for a special choice of boxes just for me.
O Santa! I've been helping Mommy round the house
even kept my own room sparkly bright
after saying my prayers I am as quiet as a mouse
am so excited to leave some milk and cookies for tonight.
O Santa! I wrote a list of things I want to play
I hope your sleigh can carry everything
dolls and dishes and games and cray ---ons
also an Angel with golden wings.
O Santa! I remember there are children on the Earth
who never got a toy or a hug or kiss
Mommy says a lady has the right to change her mind from birth
Daddy reminds me never to ever be selfish.
O Santa! if I had a Christmas wish for you
I'd package hugs and kisses laced with lots of love
so Christmas Eve as you travel please sprinkle them won't you?
like snowflakes falling from heavenly stars above.
O Santa! I am so happy knowing I can share
some gifts so free and simple to bring smiles and joy
a truly "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year" shows care
and love is the 'bestest' gift for every girl and boy.
O Santa! I will pray that you have a safe trip
and merryment will ring throughout the Globe
hope you enjoy your cookies as on chocolate milk you sip
to celebrate the Greatest Story Ever Told.
