    "Dear Santa," authors my 6 year old,
    "Is there war at the North Pole?"
    Thoughtful, sensitive and aware
    of the world around him
    he conscientously cares.
    I've raised a child who isn't full of the gimmies,
    reminded grownups yesterday
    that, "In two days
    it's baby Jesus' birthday."
    He gets what I get
    and a lot that I don't
    he looks with innocence
    as these thoughts are provoked.
    In stores we wander aisle after aisle
    while he looks to spend gift cards received
    he informs he heard there are kids without toys
    he heard about this girl and this boy.
    He puts a Barbie in our basket,
    a coloring book too
    crayons and two hats
    a airbrush kit too
    three tech decks and a snowsuit
    a pair of boots and a bat,
    he overspent but I know where his head is at.
    at the register the lady
    asks if these are all for him
    My wee lil one produced a smile
    and a nod and with a tip of his head
    he smiled and said
    "Ma'am, it feels so much better to give
    than to receive. These toys are
    for those in need."
    My sons are all that I need.
