~~ The Innocence of Children at Christmas
To see a child's eyes light up at the mention of Santa Clause,
Gives us joy to watch as they innocently believe,
That he really exists in some magic place far to the north,
With elves making gifts for them to receive.
In a child's world there is belief that a fat little man in a red suit,
Really comes to them silently in the night,
With a sack of toys on a sleigh pulled by Santa's
To make their Christmas happy and bright.
Their world is full of wonderment their minds filled with trust,
Oh to think as a child how sweet it must be.
To wake on Christmas morning to see if the snack was eaten,
And find wonderful things under the tree.
Children can visualize in their innocence this wonderful picture,
And believe it with all their precious heart.
They embrace the thought that this special day is just for them,
That in this time of magic parents had no part.
What joy they feel in their safe and loving uncluttered world,
What happy excitement they feel.
A sweet little child's Christmas surely has to be wonderful,
Because to them Santa is very real.

Have a Child's Merry Christmas
This wonderful poem was written by Norma Marek after I told
my grandson Joshua and the sweet look of innocence on his face
when he went to see Santa, and how he was looking forward
to Santa coming on Christmas Day.
I thank you Norma so very much for being the sweet and caring
person you are
and writing this poem for Joshua and all children to enjoy.
Thank you Norma for your friendship, I will treasure it always.
God bless you my friend........Judy
