Christmas 2012

Expressed in my letter, Dear Santa a seed,
Is something so special, that we all deeply need.
A world that looks brightly, with eyes from their heart,
And gives peace a chance, and let human rights start.

Please Santa just listen, as you make all your rounds,
It’s not just the children, where gift should abound.
The people on earth, need understanding and love,
Can you load on your sleigh, and send from above.

Spread it out thickly, so it will stay through next year,
Stop all the strive, masked in our terror and fear.
Just grant us one wish, our dream one perfect gift,
Wrap it with ribbons to give us a lift.

So read my Christmas letter, one wish only this year,
Give us a memorable Christmas with something to cheer.
If the world can look brightly, with eyes from their heart,
And give peace a chance, and let human rights start.
