Dear Santa

Published: October 2007

Me and Mum would always write
dear Santa Claus a note,
but this year Mum won't be around
so this is what I wrote:

Dear Santa, if I had one wish
to make all on my own,
it would be to release my Mum
and let her please come home.

Grandma makes the Christmas roast
with lots of food to eat,
but this year in the dining room
there'll be an empty seat.

I know it's far too much to ask,
so this year there's no wish,
but Santa could I ask you to
deliver my Mum this...

Trust me, Mum, you will get through
don't cry or shed a tear,
we'll celebrate our Christmas day
when you come home next year.

You told us to enjoy ourselves
but I can't promise that,
I'll miss you telling Christmas jokes
wearing your party hat.

I love you Mum with all my heart
be strong and please don't cry,
Christmas day will come and go
and time will soon fly by.

I know you made a big mistake
but what is done is done,
prison's stole our Christmas but...
they'll never steal my Mum.

To Mum With Love.

While reading this, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Only 1 difference-since Santa can't bring my husband home, I have asked that he take me to heaven to be with him! Even though distance separates you and your mum, you can write or talk with her. And there is the hope of next year. My advice is to tell her how much you care for her! We are not promised anything but now. Presents are great, but the best gift ever is the gift of ourselves! So for me, I will spend some of Christmas with my husband at the grave. Not morbid, just fact, and then look forward to eternity with him.

It's a great poem last year my mom was arrested and put in prison. I don't know when she will be home she's a great mom even though she is in there she said when she gets out she's going to be good and go back to school.

This poem is very touching, and very great. It relates to what I am going through but instead my dad is in jail. No telling too when he will get out. Keep up the beautiful poems<3 touched my heart. You should make one about a dad that is in jail but really has a good heart, and what he did wasn't all so bad(: Keep up the good work!
