Lost Girl


Peter Pan once said that there could be no lost girls
He said girls were too clever to fall out of their prams
I guess I was not all that clever
Because a lost girl is exactly what I am

I was left alone to navigate the world
No one would stake a claim to me
I did not ask for much
I just wanted a family

I wanted to be read bedtime stories
I wanted to be sung to sleep
I wanted a place to call home
A place where my childhood would keep

My Peter Pan found me when it was clear I'd never be found
He reminded me of my happy thought
With pixie dust and that thought I was able to fly
To Neverland I escaped, my sorrows I forgot

The past has no place in Neverland
I was given fair warning
I left my grown up problems behind as I flew
Second star to the right, and straight on till morning

I joined the ranks of the Lost Boys
I'm giving happiness a whirl
In this wonderful place I'll forever reside
I am a Lost Girl

*thank you to my "Peter Pan" for reminding me of my happy thought, for becoming one of my happy thoughts*
