Tis a Tale of Two Bears, and a twinkling eye.
Of families, laughter, and a Jolly Old Guy.
Of whispers and giggles, excitement and glee,
Children's sweet voices, and a lob-sided tree.
Hand made treasures, drooping from boughs
A tangled kitten, with plaintive meows.
Kitchen once ordered, now in disarray
Santa’s Cookies for this special day.
The bedrooms are quiet, the children asleep
Mother and father, just take a quick peek.
The day has been busy and mother and dad
Head for their beds, quite tired but glad.
The whole house is quiet, then a soft sound
As Santa arrives with a sack that is bound.
He spies the fresh cookies and smiles to see,
The kitten has knocked one under the tree.
As he samples the goodies, so lovingly made
He unties the sack, the contents displayed
With a magical wave the gifts are all set
But Santa has something more special yet
Two Teddies to cuddle, and secrets confide
To treasure through years and find memories tied
To look back and treasure what really was dear
The family’s warm love, year after year.
