Shooting Star

Posted on Dec 25, 2012


He looks out
on a cold dark night
Looking for a
magical sight
But no red suit is
to be seen
or Reindeer
flying in more than dreams

A year goes by
loses his faith
Family truths and
magic betrayed
But one day just
as he gives up
A shining star gives him luck

For up above
a flash so bright
Something amazing
An awesome sight
A flash of red, a
a sound of joy
Is it Santa delivering
his toys?

In awe, eyes
look up
Spirit of Christmas
full of love
No greed in his
But dreaming of Santa
and his shooting star
