~ It Happened One Christmas ~

Based on a true story

Streets were bright with Christmas cheer,
as carolers sang songs of praise.
In the middle of the city park
the Christmas tree was raised.

Every store window had gifts displayed,
and the children smiled with delight.
For soon that man in the red snow sleigh
would be streaming across the night.

But not every child was filled with joy,
in the campgrounds was one sad face.
Peeping out his tent Bobby knew,
no gifts would be coming his way.

His parents were facing some hard times,
there was no money left this year;
and try as hard as he could each day,
he just couldnít stop the tears.

He sadly arose Christmas morning,
heading out to face the bright sun.
When he opened the flap on his tent,
there were gifts laying out on the ground.

He couldnít believe this had happened,
he squealed out in childish delight.
It seems the Park Rangers had noticed,
and were touched by this familyís plight.

So when you think Santa Claus is a myth,
just because you know reindeer donít fly;
remember that Santa has helpers,
who donít have to race through the sky.
