Fluffy pink too-toos
And pink laced slippers
Yes, her dreams of pink
Laid her to sleep
With her cool tears
It'll never happen.
((she told herself))
And as her dream
And secret was unfolded
Years after dazed in front of the television set
Watching these dancers float
In beauty, grace, and poise
Crying out wishing it was her
But knowing it couldn't happen
She shed tears telling it
As her secret dream
And wish
For a fragile heart
A simple dream
Could shed light
On many smiles
If ballet is your wish,
I'll do my best to make it come true.
And even though I am clumsy
I will try too.
Because you are my sister
And I love you.
