I carry the words I found in a book years ago. Unfortunately, I don’t even know the author, but I love the poem and carry it in my wallet:

The three stages of life:
when we first believe in Santa Claus
when we no longer believe in Santa Claus
when we realise we are Santa Claus.

Paul Kooperman is the Director of the Australian Poetry Centre in Melbourne, City of Literature.

Didn’t know this was a poem. I’ve seen it on a t-shirt!
