Dear 'santa' - Poem by Maurice Harris
Dear 'Santa', -If you are reading this Father's letter,
I will still need something to make my Christmas better!
Since you are aware of those who are bad and those, good-
I know I am deserving of same, so please, Sir, if you would
Be so kind as to grant me this one gifting, I shall ask none more:
To allay my heart's breaking, sight of my children, you must restore!
I know this not to be a physical present of the usual asking-
So too, do I know, with His help, you are up to the tasking!
I recognize that the request is usually their's, though
Your ability to aid in this regard, they may not know!
Should you get a letter from the Harris': Gabriella and Abigail,
Asking for same, please do your best to allow a Father's prevail;
I know Sir, you are very busy, especially during this time of year-
I pray still that this one wish, granted, should bring you great cheer!
