Smile Carrie smile!
Remember when mum used to rub your tiny feet?
Bathed you in warm water and served you donuts
Your world was small and the smile never left your face
I recall your innocent laughter when poppye played around you
You joined school and teachers liked you
Smart demeanor and an elegant stride when puberty met you
You loved to dance with pete and smallie after school and play
Your birthday cake came late at 16
Often you let off your guard and let pete catch a peck on your cheek
Where has all the laughter gone
