When you’re sleeping,
You look so innocent.
When you’re laughing,
You look young again.
I remember us laughing
About everything and nothing.
I remember us lying in your bed,
Pretending to be asleep so Mom wouldn’t
Make me move back to my room.
You were a hardcore tomboy,
But would willingly put down
Your bike to play dolls with me.
Every time I look into your eyes,
I see a flicker of the past we shared.
