"The Tooth Fairy"
If tonight I pull out all my teeth,
And tuck them in my pillow when I sleep;
Will a fairy come and visit me
And grant me what I want most in the world?
If I could ask for any single thing,
It would be to go back to the time
When my family lived in the same house:
My mother, father, sister, cat and I.
I know we would fight and slam some doors,
But there is nothing like the joy I felt
In waking up a room or two away
From the people that I love the most.
