SANTA ! I don’t want gifts underneath the Christmas tree
All I want is a loving family.
A family that I can call my very own and feel that I belong.
There are so many of us here where I stay
And every night we all kneel to pray.
I want loving arms to hold me when I am in pain
Not abuse me and make me feel ashamed.
We are not bad kids – we’ve just been abandoned and abused
And for many adults we have no use.
SANTA ! We are not different from others
We want a family with sisters and brothers.
I know you don’t have a family in your Christmas bag
But if you did , I’d be so glad.
Maybe you could leave a note on all the stockings tonight
“ adopting a child would be a Christmas delight “
From a kid who believes in you !

It’s been a while since I’ve been here
It’s time to spread good will and cheer
There is so much gloom in the world today
And many have forgotten how to pray
With family and friends we are no longer in touch
Because of fires , earthquakes , hurricanes and such .
With that in mind I’ll make some time
To say a prayer for yours and mine.
Christmas is remembering what we do have
Not what we lost , so our problems
To the wind we must toss.
Now is the time to get up off your ass
You cannot change whets already past .
So teach the children about the birth of CHRIST
And all he had to sacrifice. By giving up his life
So that we could live – more than that he could not give!
He was but a child when the three kings appeared
Creating gift giving , good will and good cheer.
Centuries have passed since this took place
And it has spread from race to race.
No matter what struggles come our way
But for now let the children play.
( show the children the true meaning of Christmas
And never take CHRIST out of Christmas )
