Tooth Fairy - Poem by Mark Heathcote
Did you too believe in the tooth fairy?
I remember a time when I did
At first, I had those natural disbeliefs
Didn’t we all baby, didn’t we all.
Isn’t it wonderful being innocent?
Isn’t it wonderful being small?
Hiding under grandma’s kitchen table
Climbing those Eiger mountainous stairs
Counting your pennies believing …
Believing in fairies, believing teardrops
Are only missing parts of a rainbow
That’ll never cross your path again.
Just like your grandma’s kisses
Now like your milk teeth—long gone.
