    T’was the night before Christmas, he lived all alone
    In a one-bedroom house made of plaster and stone.
    I had come down the chimney with presents to give
    And to see whom in this house did live.
    As I looked all around a strange sight I did see,
    No tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.
    No stockings by the fire, just boots full of sand.
    On the wall hung pictures of a far-away land.
    With medals and badges, awards of all kinds,
    A sobering thought soon came to my mind.
    For this house was different, unlike any I’d seen.
    This was the house of a U.S. Marine.
    I’d heard stories about them, so I had to see more.
    I walked down the hallway and pushed open the door.
    And there he lay sleeping. Silent. Alone.
    Curled up on the floor of his one-bedroom home.
    He seemed so gentle, his face so serene.
    Not how I pictured a U.S. Marine.
    Was this the hero of whom I’d just read?
    Curled up on his poncho, a floor for his bed?
    His head was clean shaven, his face weathered tan.
    I soon understood this was more than a man.
    For I realized families that I had just seen that night
    Owed their lives to these men, so willing to fight.
    Soon around the nation the children would play
    And grown-ups would celebrate a bright Christmas Day.
    They enjoyed freedom each day and all year
    Because of Marines like the one lying here.
    I couldn’t help but wonder how many lay alone
    On a cold Christmas Eve in a land far from home.
    Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye.
    I dropped to my knees and I started to cry.
    He must have awakened for I heard a rough voice.
    “Santa, Don’t cry. This is my choice.
    I fight for freedom. I don’t ask for more.
    My life is my God, my Country, my Corps.”
    With that he rolled over, drifted off into sleep.
    I couldn’t control it, I continued to weep.
    I watched him for hours. So silent. So still.
    I noticed he shivered from the cold night’s chill.
    So I took off my jacket, the one made of red,
    To cover this Marine from his toes to his head.
    Then I put on his tee-shirt of scarlet and gold,
    With an eagle, globe and anchor emblazoned so bold.
    Although it barely fit me, I began to swell with pride.
    For one shining moment, I was the Marine Corps deep inside.
    I didn’t want to leave him, so quiet in the night,
    This guardian of honor, so willing to fight.
    But, half asleep, he rolled over, and in a voice clean and pure,
    Said, “Carry on, Santa, it’s Christmas Day – All Secure.”
    One look at my watch and I knew he was right.
    Merry Christmas, my friend. Semper Fi – and good night!
