To Those Who Don’t Believe In Santa
To those who don’t believe in Santa, I have some news, he’s on his way again !!
for he doesn’t exist and yet lifts millions of people into a place where sadness and pain expires,
introducing forgiveness from where least deserved.
He holds hands with friends and foes alike,
drifting onto plains of living space to make us smile.
Santa delivers a grace and softness to civility, he opens eyes of those blind to the kindness that breathes beneath the pace and greed of the modern world,
bringing the tradition and wealth to those who embrace the real reason he’s here.
For those who don’t believe in Santa, he’s upon your doorstep, not to enter and deliver gifts, but just so you can see his influence and determination to show genuine love,
as lost souls need guidance, so do those who appear strong, his reach has no boundaries and one day he may well help you from your knees.
It’s not of reality or touch, a tender moment or ho ! ho ! ho !, it’s of a spirit who travels the world on one eve, inviting us to search our skies and minds for his strength, haughty laughter, infectious glance and weathered brow to know someone, somewhere really cares….
….for those who don’t believe in Santa, Happy Christmas xx
