Vampires

I wrote this poem for my friends daughter who is being bullied in grade school. I’ve never met her before, I have no idea what she looks like, and I don’t even know her name. Yet I woke up two nights ago with her in my thoughts and moments later this poem came to me.

Oh little girl with a big heart
I don’t know your name
But your smile is art
Keep on being who you are
Your light is shining from afar
I know it hurts you what they say
But they are night and you are day
Just pretend that you can’t hear
And these vampires shall disappear
But if they ever come too near
Then shine your light my little dear
You are strong and they are weak
Trust me, one day you’ll reach the peak
Remember these words that I say
Recite them aloud each night and day
And know my princess for you I pray
I’m here to serve you without delay.
