Welcome to the USA TODAY Sports+ Lounge! The premier place for all creatives to showcase their talents. Every Friday, we will spotlight artistic content for the 2021 NFL season.
This week, USA TODAY Sports+ community engagement producer Jaylon Thompson presents "Santa's Promise" in the lounge. This poem is a personal declaration from Santa Claus that he will always be there for children on Christmas.
Sit back, relax and enjoy "Santa's Promise" by Jaylon Thompson.
In a short time, the colorful lights will alert my arrival.
Across the sky and through the clouds,
You will know by my jingle sound.
Rudolph will be in tow,
While Blitzen plays in the snow.
Don’t worry, as we will arrive on time.
Just before the sun starts to shine.
This year has been difficult indeed,
So a little holiday cheer is what we all need.
Keep the cookies warm and the milk fresh,
Those are my snacks for in-between rests.
Get some sleep as tomorrow’s a joy.
Your Christmas gifts will be filled with all the latest toys.
I promise to always be there.
Just look to the North for the red flare.
Don’t be a stranger for 365 days,
If you ever need me just say my name.
I’m always watching and I promise to do the same.
