In the night sky I see a bright light
It is right in my eyesight
It’s right in my mind.
The gods are so kind to let me see this sight.
I wish I could buy it but I know that I can’t
I can try to fly to get a closer look at it
But the thing is
I’m only flying away in my imagination.
Your daughter wrote this? How old was she? It is quite cute, and thoughtful. I assume that she’s not the age the picture depicts her to be. A six (?) year old isn’t usually that philosophical.
She was eight when she wrote this.
