    It’s 4 a.m.

    Everyone is sleep except me and her

    She’s looking at Powerpuff Girls and I’m writing this poem

    I want to give her the world

    I want to protect her from everyone

    I want to tell her everything

    But she’s only six

    She already likes boys

    She steals my make-up everyday

    She tells me it’ll be okay when I cry

    But she’s only six

    Her voice is almost never frowning

    Her body is shaped like a twenty-five year old woman

    Her intelligence is amazing

    But she’s only six

    She sleeps in a bed with me

    She wakes me up everyday at nine a.m.

    She laughs at all my jokes

    But she’s only six

    It’s 4 a.m.

    Everyone is sleep except me and her

    She’s looking at Powerpuff Girls and I’m writing this poem

    And tomorrow she’ll be seven.
