My Little Baby

Zelda
 I sit here looking through old photos, toys, and memories.
I look at you as you grew, and I think,
Where did my baby go?
 
My little girl, so grown up with a mind of her own.
I miss the days of snuggles and rocking you to sleep.
I miss your giggles and your nonsense words.
 
I can’t stop you from growing,
and I can’t stop you from getting hurt,
but mommy will be here no matter what.
 
Loving you and snuggling you,
just like I did when you were my little baby. 
You will always be my little baby girl.

Ghost of a Life That is Not Mine
What have I done wrong,
To keep me from your mind?
Forgotten and left aside,
A memory of one who came before.

A ghost of a life that was not mine.
A memory of one who shares my face.
Lost in an endless tide, reaching but never touching.

Summers in the sun, the surf at our feet.
Summers in the sand, drawing, and laughing.
Summers on the street, bikes and games and more.

A ghost of a life that was not mine.
A memory of one who shares my face.
Lost in an endless tide, reaching but never touching.
 
My childhood lost in a daze
My Innocence long since forgotten
My memories fade away.

A ghost of a life that was not mine
A memory of one who shares my face.
Lost in an endless tide, reaching but never touching.

Blue Bunny

A small blue bunny lay on the side of the bed. 
Tossed aside with holes and tears. She used to hold it each night, 
But as time moved on the bunny 
Fell to the side. 
A girl runs into her room in tears 
Much older now, she lies on the bed and cries. 
In the corner, the little blue Bunny lays 
Wishing to comfort the little girl.
