For some reason, I just could not sleep this evening and thought I'd do a little writing. I'm sure like many of you, when the mind wanders around this time of year, our thoughts tend to revolve around Santa, Christmas, the season, and more.
Despite having suffered from a bad fall and a broken foot, I remain excited about the coming season and consider myself fortunate and lucky to be able to wear the red suit and be looked at, treated, and called...Santa Claus.
I certainly am no poet, I know many could write circles around me, but my mind was racing and I thought I'd be a little creative at the same time...I hope you enjoy my friends, the time has come!
The Time has Come!
by Santa Johnathan
The time has come to dress in red
To brush the beard, and look well fed.
The time has come to understand your role;
Always “placing children first” to be your goal.
The time has come to sit and hear,
The wishes of children whispered in your ear.
The time has come for those to believe;
for excitement, joy, and gifts to receive.
The time has come to show the world love
And celebrate the child that was sent from above.
The time has come, there’s much to do
Time will fly and then you’re through,
When the season ends, full of cheer and fun,
You can look back at a job well done.
You can look back at the tender times and more,
You can remember what you do this all for,
And always remember from the very start,
You made a difference, you touched a heart,
You brought a smile, a tear, a hug,
You showed them Santa, you showed them love.
The time has come, the moment is here,
YOU are Santa, you need not fear,
Follow your heart, you’ll know what to say,
Just put on the suit, and get in the sleigh.
