My Christmas Wish

My Christmas Wish is……..

For an end to hunger and dread
and that everyone gets fed

With enough water to drink
like in my kitchen sink

An end to all illness and disease
the answer to the prayers of millions on their knees

Santa I don’t to need see your sleigh
or for you to drop by to say hey
Just put these things on your list
because they are my Christmas wish

That we live in harmony with respect
as one with all hands on deck

We are all crew with one captain in command
whether you live in a rain-forest or in sand

That all the killings and the wars stop
for only love can take us to the mountain top

Regardless if we say hotep or shalom
it’s time for peace on earth our home

Santa I don’t need to see your sleigh
or for you to drop by to say hey
Just put these things on your list
because they are my Christmas wish
