Little Girl


Written by: Amanda Swindahl

Little girl with dark hair, and freckles.

Little girl, I wont forget her.

Little girl so brave.

In my heart you are engraved,

these memories ill take to the grave.

Little girl was always there.

Little girl just down the street,

Little girl moved away,

I watched the moving van roll down your driveway,

I turned back around to chase you,

Little girl I missed you,

Little girl it hurt so much.

Little girl I cried tears that fell like broken glass,

Where were you, I needed you.

Little girl, my best friend.



Little girl, not so little anymore,

Little girl grew up so pretty,

Little girl, always looked up to her,

Little girl you were always my hero.

Always strong when I was weak,

It was all my secrets that you would keep,

The good times that made us laugh until our knees became weak.


Little girl, we are not so little anymore.



Little girl, your laughter still fills the air.

Little girl shadows dance in the backyard,

Sled marks down your driveway,

Sometimes I see your ghost in my memory,

I stop and stare and hope you'll appear.

Little girl the swings sway the way we used to play.

Little girl, no matter where you go, no matter where life takes us,

Just take these words, take these memories.

Without you they become so haunting.

Little girl, you will always be my best friend.

The girl that grew up, forever my hero.
