You

“There’s something about childhood friends that you just can’t replace.”

You could do somersault with me

You were the prince to my ballerina

You always pushed me higher on the swing

and held me when I fell down

You were always my home

You could always save me

 

You could always sneak away candies

from the jar without been caught

You could eat the ice cream

till it melted on all our clothes

You always shared

your last jelly bean with me

You were always my home

You could always save me

 

You could always sneak away

in the middle of the day

to do the role play in the fancy dollhouse

You could always wipe my tears

when I break down

You were always my home

You could always save me

 

You could do somersault with me

in the sand

make a sand castle in the beach

till the sun went down

You were always my home

You could always save me

 

You made me reach higher

by giving me a  foothold

we played hide and seek in the dark

in that old haunted house

Our getaway was the small dingy house

up in the tree

You always put ice on my skinned knee

You were always my home

You could always save me 

 

You always scared away the bullies

and stood like a wall in front of me

Made me feel like a princess

with my bespectacled eyes and toothy grin

You were always my home

You could always save me
