Once Upon A Christmas Eve ( sucky name I kno but help me come up with a better one)

Once upon a time
A little child came to me,
And asked me for a favor
So I sat him on my knee.

“What do you want?” I asked him softly,
“What does your heart desire?”
“All I want,” he timidly admitted,
“Is a warm Christmas fire.”

“You see,” the little boy went on.
“Our house is oh-so cold.
“And my baby brother’s hands are freezing;
“He’s only two months old.”

“My mama can’t pay for heat.
“She tries as hard as she can.
“But every time she gets a little money
“She’s forced to give it to that man.”

“What man?” I ask.
My face clouds with concern;
For this little boy wise beyond his years
Has tried so hard to discern.

“A guy comes to the house,” he goes on.
“And says we have to pay our debts.
“So every time Mama has money,
“He takes all she gets.”

“I’m not asking for a miracle.
“I just want some heat,
“So that maybe when I go to sleep at night
“The cold won’t nip my feet.”

“I’m a big boy now,
“Almost six years old.
“But, my brother, he is little
“And he can’t stand the cold.”

“So, God, all I want,
“Is something to keep us warm.
“I don’t want the baby to get sick.
“I need to keep him far from harm.”

I looked down into his bright blue eyes
I really wanted to help.
I wiped a tear off my cheek.
There my heart did melt.

I promised I’d do what I could
To make their Christmas cheerful.
After all, it had to be hard
To give me that sad earful.

I set off in search of a store
And what did I find?
That almost every store was closed
Except one merchant who was kind.

Thank goodness I had found that place
So full of everything.
I bought them toys, I bought them food.
My heart started to sing.

Lastly I found a heater
That ran completely on gas.
I filled it up then bought it too,
Hoping the merchant wouldn’t ask.

I drove my truck across town
And stopped in front of his home.
This Christmas they’d have fun
And not feel so alone.

I put the stuff on their doorstep
And started to walk away.
But then the little boy came out
And said, “God, why don’t you stay?”

“I can’t,” I replied.
“I must get back to where I belong.”
And with that I hopped into my truck,
My soul bursting into song.

To make someone’s Christmas so sunny
Was a feeling I’d never known.
I didn’t think of what I’d get.
Or if I’d be thanked for the kindness I’d shown.

I thought of that little boy
And his family
And realized I did some good,
A feeling new to me.

I prayed for God to bless His son,
The one believed in His word.
And praise the boy who believed in Him
And thought that I was The Lord.
