Here to Stay

Asleep alone, she lays in bed
Wrapped in covers—toe to head

Gentle skin and long blond hair
Sparkling glitter everywhere

A glowing star, she shines so bright
So peaceful in the quiet night

She dreams of dreams I’ll never know
…envisions worlds I’ll never go

And come the morning, she will rise
Adventure pouring from her eyes

So bright and ready to start the day
I just wish she were here to stay
