Bells and socks I hang,
Pretty ribbons I tie.
Handfuls of glitter I sprinkle,
Smiling angels float all around.
I look up at the tree,
Happy with all that it is covered in..
Cotton balls I place on it
Little gifts I keep under it's shade.
The big star I hold
There is no way I can reach the top.
I feel someone lift me up,
And I gently fix it on the top.
'Ho Ho' Says Santa.
'Don't you want a gift?'
I clap my hands in glee
With a big grin forming on my face.
'I want to be big so that I can reach the star'
I dash off to build snowmen,
When I'm tired
Santa carries me back home
Drifts me in to the land of angels and snowmen..
I look up at my tree.
And the angels float.
I big up the big star,
Standing on my toes I fix it up.
I turn back and smile..
As Sana slowly moves towards me.
'Ho Ho..' Says he,
'What is your wish?'
'I want to be a child once again..' I say.
'You're always my child. No matter how old you grow.'
My father smiles at me..
I hold his hands gently
As I help him walk out of the house.
He sits on the porch,
As I build him a snowman.
As the clock strikes twelve,
I run up to him.
'Merry Christmas Father..'
'Merry Christmas my Child.
You've always been my star...'
We sit outside all night, watching the snow fall, listening to the distant carols..
Drowning in the gifts of our memories..
