Christmas MiracleA little girl in a bright red dress,
stood in line to see Santa, her hair in a mess.
In her mittens held Santa’s letter,
and Santa’s life changed from the moment he met her,
When the little girl sat in his lap,
she simply asked, “Can you wake Mommy from her nap?
You see, she was in an accident last fall,
Daddy said she was on the way home from the mall.
I miss her a lot, she’s far away in Oklahoma.
Something about receiving treatment for a coma?”
The little girl kissed Santa on the cheek,
and jumped off his lap cheering, “I see Santa in a week!”
Santa sat stunned, not knowing what to do,
for on Christmas morn, the little girl’s wish would remain untrue.
So he went through the holidays disheartened and sad,
even his new set of golf clubs couldn’t make him feel glad!
A few days after Christmas, Santa’s daughter dragged him to the mall.
She wanted to get a new wardrobe for winter, to replace her clothes from fall.
After a while they stopped in the food court for a break,
and got some dessert, a slice of cherry cheese cake.
Suddenly, Santa felt a tap on his shoulder,
and turned around to see the little girl with a woman much older.
“Santa, I just wanted to say thanks for Mommy,
and to give you a gift, from me and my brother Tommy.
The little girl handed him a small package and walked away.
Santa opened it and grinned, “This just made my day.”
His daughter questioned, “What is it Daddy?”
His response? “A Christmas miracle, Mattie.”
Mattie peeked at the gift and smiled,
for she saw a picture of a woman in a hospital bed, holding her beloved child.
