A Place For Me

by Emily Stroud
(California )

Momma told me we all go someday

She never said it would be this soon

I'm too young to know about all of this pain

But every day I hear her crying in her room

"She won't live, it's too big of a chance"

"But maybe if you give that clipboard another glance."

She begged and begged but the man wouldn't go away

Every day I spent was thriving in pain

Feeling weaker and weaker within the day

They always said never to waste the live you're given

But I can barely breathe now

There's a place for from here

They take good care of kids like me

I'll stay young and happy

If you'll just let me float away


One night this boy came to me

He said 'take my hand and I can cure this disease.'

We walked on air and he showed me the way to the place in my dreams
When we arrived I felt like a new me

But I can't help but this about mommy

I ask 'when will I see her again?
'
He looked at the ground and said

"Darling she knows you'll be safe with me"

There's a place far from here

They take good care of kids like me

I'll stay young and happy

If you'll just let me float away

I never saw her again but I was told she was okay

I miss her with all my heart

And I know she feels the same
