Dear Father Christmas,
I know I’ve grown up quickly and I’m 20, but I need to talk to you now, like a child does.
I tried to be a good girl this year, I tried to help people who needed me, I tried to be a good friend for lonely ones, I tried doing a hundred things even when I had so few time, I tried to forget someone, but I couldn’t.
I know I don’t deserve him, I know he isn’t a parrot I can close in my golden cage, I know I may not be the right one for him, ‘cause I’m not so good and beautiful and clever and cheerful…At everything, but I LOVE HIM SINCERELY and I won’t never, ever let him happen something, I care about him more than I care about myself.
When I’m with him, he’s all the colours o’my life, he’s food when I’m hungry, he’s my slanket when I’m freezing cold, he’s rain on bad weather and weather is not bad, he’s snow filling my garden under which I like dancing, he’s water when I feel dirty and unconfident and wrong at everything.
His laugh is the sound of my music, the actors of my favourite pièce, the marshmallows into my hot chocolate, he’s the beating of my heart.
His eyes are a new world no one has discovered yet, except me, I’m the new Columbus. He reads through me as my skin were glassy.
As a balloon he flew away from my hand at the mercy of the wind.
Dear Father Christmas, I would like you to be so powerful to give food to the hungry ones, money to the poor ones, happiness to the sad ones and health to the ill ones.
I would like you to make my brother speak, as he can’t, I would like to see my parents smile for I’ll try and make ‘em proud, I would like to see ‘em kissing, again, as they did when I was younger.
I would like to have my love back, because my life without him sucks and no one understands it.
I would like to hold him, I would like to take his hand again in mine, with no fear, I would like to look again in his eyes, cause I can’t pretend anymore.
I hope things change, if they won’t, please, help me to forget, forget him and whatever we were together, FOREVER.
And help him to be happy with someone he deserves, please!
I hope you’ll read this letter, I trust you and I love you so much.
