You should really read Annies' Wish before this one

Hi God its Annie
How are you up there?
I have a favor to ask YOU
If You have a moment to spare
I know mommy's there
Up in heaven with YOU
Can You tell her about us?
How we're starting brand new?
See daddy has found
A new mommy for me
I still love my old one God
She special to me
I know daddy still loves her
There's still nights he cries
But more often now
There's joy in his eyes
She loves us both
And God I like her too
And I really believe
She's an angel from You
God could you tell my mommy
That I love her so
And I'll never forget her
I just wanted her to know
This Christmas Eve is special
Because God You see
Tonight he's gonna ask her
To marry him and me
And God I know
We will be truly blessed
If You could just get her
To please say yes
So God this is Annie
Its time for me to go
Tell my mommy I love her
And that I miss her so
Merry Christmas to You God
And all your angels too
Merry Christmas from Annie
And God?....thank You.

This was so sad. BUt it's great you're moving on and so is your daddy. This is wonderful. The poem almost made me cry! I loved it! SUch wonderful expression.

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

This was beautiful! I love the happy ending sequel.


You cling to your ways and leave mine to me.
Suum cuique.

This was a tear jerker, for sure ! Very effective. You voiced the child's sincerity so well. Touching.

Such a sad poem, but I love the hopeful tone you use. I enjoyed this very much, and I also enjoyed "Annie's Wish". Keep up the great work!  

False gems may shine as brightly as the genuine article, but there are always those who can tell the difference.
