So Long Ago

24 0 0


she promised me the whole world

'cause I was her baby girl

she would tuck me in at night

telling stories of fairytale life

she said a prince would come for me

and I'd live my happy ending

but the younger me didn't have a clue

that fairytale endings never came true

now that I've almost grown

I look back at those nights that seem so long ago

I think how easy life used to be

but now that I'm older it's only more challenging

My junior year is about to begin

just another sign that my childhood is close to an end

and when I'm all alone

I'll still think about the mom I used to have so long ago.
