Mary's Song

July 14, 2011
Back when you were 6years old
A good little girl
Did just what you were told
Why bother with pain when you can just sing and twirl?

Back when you went right to sleep
Didn’t have to worry ‘bout lies
No dark secrets to keep
Didn’t hear your mama’s cries

Back when there was nothing to do
Just dance and play
And your big brother would sing to you:

“Twinkle twinkle little star
In your dreams you’ll go so far
Up above the world you’ll shine
But dearest sister, you’re always mine

Twinkle, twinkle my little star
You may wonder who you are
One day it’ll all be so clear
But until then, I’m always here

So twinkle, twinkle little star
Don’t worry about who you are
You’ll always shine
Both now and later down the line”

Back when you wanted to grow up
When it seemed so great
The world didn’t seem so tough
You can change your mind, it’s not too late

You’re thirteen now
Still wanna be so old (wanna get up and go)
Just don’t know how
So tired of doin’ what you’re told

Go back to when you were 6years old
Sleepin’ easy, playin’ hard
Doing what you were told
Having no need to be on your guard

Go back to the happy times
There wasn’t so much to do
Didn’t seem so hard to shine
When your brother used to sing, and everyone believed in you

Remember,

“Twinkle twinkle little star
In your dreams you’ll go so far
Up above the world you’ll shine
But dearest sister, you’re always mine

Twinkle, twinkle my little star
You may wonder who you are
One day it’ll all be so clear
But until then, I’m always here

So twinkle, twinkle little star
Don’t worry about who you are
You’ll always shine
Both now and later down the line”
