Dear Santa Poem by Bernard Snyder

Dear Santa



Material things I would never ask of you
because I can get them on my own,
but I've got a friend that's fighting a battle
she can't win all alone,
I will always be in her corner
because that's what true friends do
but I realize I can't be there always
so here's what I need from you,
on Christmas, I want you to take her a ' box of happiness'
so that her heart remains warm and splendid
you can leave the gift-tag unsigned
I'm quite sure she'd know who sent it.

I can identify with a sad plight in my family. Good poem, as always, simply put across with a powerful message.
