    Snowflakes softly falling
    Upon your window they 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, and 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
