I have learned that the truly meaningful gifts in life can’t be ordered on-line
or scored at a Mall or Department store
they’re not made by machines or glued, stitched or assembled by young hands
in factories in cities whose names I can’t pronounce or find on a map.
No Santa, I am older and wiser and I have learned a lot and seen a lot and I understand more.
So this year, on the one night filled with Spirits and Magic and I am asking for just two things.
An extra hour of darkness and bone chilling cold- the kind of cold that freezes the blood in your veins- or outside of your veins as the case may be.
Thank you Santa-
I am forever your Faithful Servant
