The boy kicked the sand beneath his feet,
Cursing the steamy Florida heat.
He used to love this time of year,
But now he’d lost his holiday cheer.
He didn’t want to celebrate on a beach,
His Christmas spirit seemed out of reach.
Then something hit him just like a dart,
Something that woke his sleeping heart.
Another boy walked up with a grin,
And said, a friendship we should begin.
This boy knew nothing of snowflakes,
On Christmas, his dad would grill some steaks.
And yet, this boy might be the one,
To brighten Christmas and make it fun.
Together, they combined what they knew,
And, as they worked, their friendship grew.
They turned the beach into a winter wonderland,
And celebrated Christmas hand in hand.
