There Once Was a Little Girl

By Megan Smith

There once was a little girl who did not want to grow up

She dreamed of flying off to Neverland

There once was a little girl who dreamed of having her own horses

Ones white as snow, dark as midnight, red as a glittering fire

There once was a little girl who created her own kingdom

Out of branches and vines, snow and ice

There once was a little girl who climbed trees

So high, she imagined she lived in the sky

There once was a little girl who imagined

That she lived at the castle at the end of the lane

There once was a little girl who dreamed up stories

That she hoped to write down one day

There once was a little girl who wanted the world

But the world would never be enough for her
