Tommy's Christmas Prayer

by Donald Xander © 2022

Oh Lord if you can hear me,
I come to you today.
I tried asking Santa,
But he said I should pray.

He said I must go higher,
He said you wouldn't mind.
He said you were accustomed to,
Queries of this kind.

I have one wish for Christmas,
I've only one request.
And if you could respond to this,
I know you'd do your best.

More years than any one of us,
Who walk this earth below.
You were summoned for us,
At least that much I know.

You died a very young man,
You gave your life for all,
Even though you were betrayed,
At least as we recall.

You did this for all mankind,
To rid the sins of man.
But it seems we failed you,
As we're back where we began.

So I ask once more if I may,
To help this world find peace.
To rid us all from, hate and greed,
That mankind's banes will cease.

Let those elect to serve us,
Do exactly that and more.
To not be so self serving,
But to govern like before.

I know that this must grieve you,
As you gave your life for us.
Yet many have forgotten,
While others broke your trust.

So Lord if you can hear me,
I want no gifts below my tree.
But please grant my Christmas Prayer,
And rid this world's hostility.
