A Mother’s Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

What I want, can’t be bought in a store.
No, what I want, means so much more.

It’s something I have waited so long to hear.
I really hope my wish is granted, this year.

It seems to come so easily for most kids.
I hope this wasn’t caused, by something I did.

I have cried, and whispered many prayers.
Sometimes, I feel like no one is there.

The pain is real, and hard to bear.
Please, Santa, show me that you care.

I’m trying really hard to not lose hope,
But I’m losing the strength I need, to cope.

If it’s something that you would let me loan,
I would be willing to give away my own.

You see, I will do whatever it takes,
Just to get rid, of all these heartaches.

So Santa, if I could have my choice,
I want my son, to get a voice.

Sincerely,
A mama who will never lose hope.
