Little Girl Now

Lyric idea:

If you close your eyes now & pause
All will be dusk & trees, a hush ...
A calm inside, like a doe at full moon
& then can you finally think to let go?
Drink the dark, cool inhalation?
Cover under the green air blanket?
Dream of wind-brought silences
& NOT needing, NOT grasping?

just rolling over -
playing make believe -
shhh ...like a litle girl now
like a little girl

unclamp the vice of bitter remains --
ask, once again, an innocent 'why?' --
then forget the question & wander away
to the fascination of a field of daisies.
It's as simple as that - can you recall?
No magic to making Barbie dolls real --
No effort in moments slowly unwinding.
or counting miles 'tween thunder & lightning.

it's just rolling over --
playing make believe --
Shhh ... like a little girl, now
... Like a little girl
shhh ... like a little girl, now
... like a little girl

I thought of this lastnite when Ciera had spread out blankets, pillows, tiny furniture, and set up a little Barbie fort with her dolls.
