*Shattered Dreams *

by Stephanie Fish

*Standing tall at five years old

*Nothing could defeat me even when the world got cold

*I turned eleven and hung my head

*Watching my one love turn dead

*Lowered into the ground and into the dirt

*Not knowing how much my heart would hurt

*Three years later I sit in my bed

*Holding my head... wishing I was dead

*One life lost and tomorrow’s dreams

*I wont grow old

*But I will hold..

*My old shattered dreams
