Do you remember her?

She used to dream so freely

Grasping for joy and comfort

In the spaces where there was no room

For hate


She colored outside of the lines so well

And her ears heard nothing but melodies

Her eyes saw nothing but beautiful things

She used to believe that everyone was pure-hearted

And she could laugh and smile in her own way

Without second-guessing her appearance


Remember when she sat on her mother’s lap

And thought the world was perfect,

Just the way it was?

She used to lie at night, unburdened

Her thoughts light, her mind at ease

Do you remember her, the little girl you used to be?




Hold me like you won’t let go

Tell me how you really feel

Because, you see, I need to know

If what we share is fake or real

Let me see your eyes tonight

Sister, brother, of my heart

I won’t let you leave my sight

For I can’t stand for us to part

Let’s you and I teach others how

Love is the only thing we need

Whisper in my ear a vow

That we’ll plant love’s budding seed
