I Wish I Was Mrs. Claus

If I were Mrs. Claus
then I could hitch a ride
with the big guy
the one who brings the gifts
and watches children sleep
who eats the pickled eggs
and drinks the beer
while reindeer wait
on prancing feet

I would rouse each of you
with a soft caress
and a feather soft kiss
and whisper a holiday greeting
before disappearing
into the night
leaving fairy dust
as the wind blows me away
in snowy, swirling gusts

Away I would fly
nestled in the sleigh
while you turn
and sigh
and sleep
safe and sound
and full of good dreams
of mistletoe kisses
and candy cremes

In the morn
when you awake
and your feet
first hit the floor
and your family dances
in my fairy dust
I expect you to laugh, ha ha ha!
And sing, fa la la la la
la la la la

Yes, I wish I were Mrs. Claus
so I could visit you all
and hug you
and squeeze you
and kiss your foreheads
Instead I’ll leave some fairy dust
so you remember Inanna was here
and wishes you the best of holiday cheer!
