Dear Santa

Snowflakes Softly Falling Upon Your Window Play
Your Blankets Snug Around You, Into Sleep You Drift Away

I Bend To Gently Kiss You
When I See That On The Floor
There's A Letter, Neatly Written
I Wonder Who It's For?

I Quietly Unfold It
Making Sure You're Still Asleep
It's A Christmas List For Santa
One My Heart Will Always Keep

It Started Just As Always
With The Toys Seen On TV
A New Watch For Your Father
And A Winter Coat For Me

But As My Eyes Read On
I Could See That Deep Inside
There Were Many Things You Wished For
That Your Loving Heart Would Hide

You Asked If Your Friend
Molly, Could Have Another Dad
It Seems Her Father Hits Her
And It Makes You Very Sad

Then You Asked Dear Santa
If The Neighbors Down The Street
Could Find A Job
That He Might Have Some Food, Clothes And Heat

You Saw A Family On The News
Whose House Had Blown Away
"Dear Santa, Send Them Just One Thing
A Place Where They Can Stay"

"And Santa, Those Four Cookies
That I Left You For A Treat
Could You Take Them To The Children
Who Have Nothing Else To Eat?"

"Do You Know That Little Bear I Have
The One I Love So Dear?
I'm Leaving It For You
To Take To Africa This Year"

"And As You Fly Your Reindeer
On This Night Of Jesus' Birth
Could Your Magic Bring To Everyone
Goodwill And Peace On Earth?"

"There's One Last Thing Before You Go
So Grateful I Would Be
If You'd Smile At Baby Jesus
In The Manger By Our Tree"

I Pulled The Letter Close To Me
I Felt It Melt My Heart
Those Tiny Hands Had Written
What No Other Could Impart

"And A Little Child Shall Lead Them"
Was Whispered In My Ear
As I Watched You Sleep On Christmas Eve
While Santa Claus Was Here
