As a kid I made a toy
she was like me- short and small.
I sewed her up with bathroom towels
she was original and had no jowls.
Practical joke I did make-
with Funny toy that was a make believe fake.
I put fake toy in my bed
covered the blankets over her head.
Then when my sibling went to sleep
I told her from far away
I was sleeping ‘Please don’t make a peep? ‘
My brother said, ‘Are you alright?
you look very sick looking tonight.’
I replied, with a yell, ha! Ha!
Then I ran to room laughing to
fight the band
My sister was frazzled I understand
It was very funny, it was a blast–
These funny childhood memories are the ones that last!
Sarah would be Birthday princess for a day
she would have her “Special Island Birthday”
even her stuff toys would join in on the fun-
a birthday party celebration had just begun.
Jewels galore would be on her dress
she would blow out the cake
that never made a mess.
For it was a cake that had an electrical switch
Sarah would light up her birthday candle by
going click, click, click.
Now I have photos of her Princess Days…
Sarah all happy when at a very young age.
May the memories of be a place in Sarah’s heart—
childhood memories not far apart…
They are a part of the childhood days gone past
they are happy memories that are sure to last.
