Forgotten Presents
by Michael Romani

To all the kids who learned
How not to believe
All of those who have been turned
By things that do deceive

Keep your eyes on the cross
Count the hurts that caused the loss
And hold on tight to the prayers
And lessons learned on church stairs

That hurt comes before the anger
Tossed feelings that are not stranger
A hug out of disappointed dreams
Christmas carols that play in streams

A darkened world is its own plight
I think on this, this most holy night
Drifting thoughts float into prescience
Of being all and one of forgotten presents

In the Hall of Letters are the memories
That lay behind the history of our families
And all of those little things that make life better
Summed up here in this legacy of letters

Words written in the staid belief
That our desires told would gain relief
And that dreams given make life better
Faith, hope and love somehow brought together

All of the elves in Santa's workshop
Going at it full drill and full stop
Could not do but to ensure Christmas endures
And in this, humanity finds its needed cure

True believers to the core of each one
This is the truth of life since it first begun
It's Christmas and snow is falling on the ground
It's time that a miracle or two is found
