Santa Steps down from His Throne

Santa Steps Down from His Throne

Monday thru Saturday
In the center of the mall
Sits a jolly bearded fellow,
Playing Santa is his call.

Sitting on his throne-like chair,
His lap is more than ready.
Waiting for the children,
The line is long and steady.

One by one he bonds with them,
Excitement in the air.
Wish by wish he listens,
With attentiveness and care.

But Sunday's coming and it's time
For Santa to step down from his throne.
He's ready to go and worship God,
A place where he feels at home.

Santa knows this throne of his
Is just a fantasy.
That God himself is on His throne
Throughout eternity.

About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents. I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
