Children's Poem: Dear Santa

Santa Claus

Dear Santa ...

by CJ Heck

You always bring me many things, 
my little sister, too, 
things we love to play with 
and so many things to do. 

I see you in big limos 
waving at us in parades. 
I see you in the shopping malls 
and even in arcades. 

I see you on the corners 
where you're ringing little bells. 
I see you talking on TV 
advertising big hotels. 

It causes me to wonder 
if you're really really there, 
or are you just too busy 
with all those things to care? 

See, I have a best friend, Tommy, 
and I'm sending his address 
so this year you won't miss his house, 
'cause Tommy, he's the best. 

Please, Santa, take some time off 
from those other things you do 
and this year, visit Tommy's house? 
He needs some presents, too.
