My Lost Tooth (For Ben)


My tooth right here, it came out,
It hurt a little, but I didn't pout,

Mom said, let's keep it, and put it here,
In a little bag, her face had a tear,

Tonight, she said, under your pillow there,
The tooth fairy will come, because she'll care,

Because she loves, and a good boy you are,
A surprise she'll leave, after coming so far,

So when you wake up, and look with care,
under your pillow, right under there,

A surprise you will find, she left for you,
Because, just like mommy, she loves you too.

And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
