Once on this island...and sunday self portrait...

One small girl
In the way
Constantly hungry
Learning too quick

One small girl
Hard at play
She makes me smile
She scares me sick!

And they scolded and teased
And held her
And mended the clothes she tore

And the hut was crowded
And food was scarce
And somehow, their lives held more

One small girl
To live for.

One small girl
Not so small

Lost in those daydreams
Day after day

Her ears
Don't hear
She's far away

And I know that
She's getting older
I know that it's
Meant to be

And my arms
Can't hold her
And keep her small
But all that my
Heart can see...

Is one small girl
In a tree...
