"Giving You My Heart"

Written by Salkis Re

 

As a little girl,

I could make mistakes

and never feel bad inside.

I could fumble the ball

or fail a test

and still keep all of my pride.

/

I could walk outside with disheveled hair,

and not bear any shame.

I could do air twirls,

trip and fall to my knees,

and they would all rush to my aid.

/

Could say no to sharing my candy today,

and still keep all of my friends,

or play secluded in my backyard

without missing any of them..

/

I could be a princess,

on a rickety throne,

for everyone to see.

And I'd be hard pressed to hear someone else

tell me that could never be.

/

The mud pies always baked to perfection,

the slugs can't outrun the salt.

Discrepancies can and will insue

but none need claim their the fault.

/

We solve problems with Italian Icies and salty Chico Sticks.

We'd play dress up like our mommies and smoke Candy Cigarettes.

/

Wear out our jaws with caramel Sugar Daddy's

and script our dislike for boys.

And at sunset,

we'd plan the next day

before the street lights came on.

/

Now it's a big deal to make mistakes

or go out with messy hair.

Hard pressed to find people to care

till they think you have something to share.

/

I miss those days

when I wasn't afraid

to openly state my dreams.

When I could wake up

to so much love

and see it even in my sleep.

/

When if I gave you all I had

it would not be picked apart.

No stomping about nor ignored,

or need to buy back my heart.
