The Little Green Engine.....
Author: Terrie*


the little green engine
I gave to my friend
the little green engine
became very special
because I gave it to my special friend Nat
my little friend fell in love with his engine
as soon as he opened it up
tears rolled down his chubby cheeks
as tears swelled our eyes
his one wish was to have
his own little engine
but one that wasn't red
he wanted one like his dad
so I bought
a little red engine
and painted it
a kewe green
it was a sweet
but sad sight I had ever seen
when he turned to me
and gave me a loving grin
as he motioned to me
to come closer to his bed side
my emotions that I tried so hard to hide
escaped this heart of mine..
