A CHILD’S DISCOVERY

She sat on his lap
What is your request? He asked
She whispered in his ear.

Santa,
Give me a hug
So I know what it feels like.

Santa,
Give me a kiss
So I know what it tastes like.

Santa,
Tell me you love me
So I know what it sounds like.

He fulfilled her requests
Thank you Santa, she said
Now I know the true meaning of Christmas.
