Santa And Me
One Christmas I had to help santa
or no presents there would be
It was very warm and rainy
a very unusual Christmas to me
The presents were stored and ready
in the old mill house across the creek
Me and santa thought we'd never make it
crossing that footlog and swelled up creek
But we managed to make it across
and we carried them on in home
The kids were fast asleep
and didn't even know we'd been gone
We left them in that old toe sack
and laid them near the tree
When the kids got up the next morning
what a sight there was to see
But one present came up missing
and my sister was awfully sad
Me and santa had to back track ourselves
or things were going to get bad
We found that little doll
a little piece out the road
Me and santa had surely dropped it
out of that big toe sack load
Then everyone was happy
thanks to santa and me
What a wonderful Christmas memory
every year I put under my tree

Susie, thanks for sharing a lovely memory. Christmas memories like this are what make the holiday season special not all the shopping hustle and bustle and commmercialism, which I so dislike.ReplyDelete
