Bamboo - Poem by Kilee Burton

She sits quitely staring above
The stars are like candles lighting up the sky
Memories drift deep into her mind
Of a childhood she left behind

Deep in a jungle in Africa
A small girl by the name of Bamboo was born
She had curly hair
A smile that could warm a heart

It would take a kind person
One who could care for her
A special someone

She remembered her mothers voice
It echoed in her thoughts
She remembered the day they took her away
She left forever

She sits quitely staring above
The stars are like candles lighting up the sky
Memories drift deep into her mind
Of a childhood she left behind
