Editor's note: Students at Riverton Middle School have formed a club called the RMS Guild. Members selected three pieces for consideration in our annual Christmas Greetings Edition. One was given permission to be printed anonymously. It's Christmas Soon Last night I left a note on Laura's desk It said "I love you," signed "Anonymous Friend" Turns out she's smarter than I thought she was She knows I wrote it, and the whole class does too And I'm all alone during couple's skate When she skates by with some guy on her arm But I knowI'll forget that look of pity on her face When we're huddled together 'Cause it's gonna be Christmas soon, and I won't always be this way, When the things that make be weak and strange Get ho-ho-hoed away. It's gonna be Christmas soon; I've never seen it quite so clear And when my heat is breaking, I can close my eyes It's already here Maybe I'll call myself her Christmas Wish Giving her present that will light up her face I'll give her diamonds; I'll make dolphins speak Working through daytime, spend midnight and weekends Perfecting my rollers for couple's skate Building up once graceful move at a time I'l win her love and sow her what I'm worth I just hope I can keep her from making we hurt 'Cause it's gonna be Christmas soon, and I won't always be this way When the things that make me weak and strange Get ho-ho-hoed away It's gonna be Christmas soon; I've nee seen it quite so clear And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes It's already... Here at school they'll wonder As I piece by piece better myself And they won't kick me under But I'll still feel so alone... until Laura calls me home I'll see her standing by the fireplace She'll look the same except for a twinkle in her eyes She got it when I held her in my arms I'll say 'I love you," she'll say"And you, too, Merry Christmas", and she'll hand me a cookie plate Smiling that smile only Laura can make I'll take a bite and smile back wide Because it's Christmas Eve and I know Laura is mine 'Cause it's gonna be Christmas soon, and I won't always be this way Wen the things that make me weak and strange Get ho-ho-hoed away It's gonna be Christmas soon; I've never seen it quite so clear And when my heart is breaking, can close my eyes It's already here ...
