Bigger Than The Sky
There was boy named Davey who had a friend named Jill,
He loved to play with her, it was an absolute thrill!
They loved going fishing and sharing what they caught,
They loved slides and swings sets a whole lot!
They loved to pick berries and lay out in the sun,
They loved each other so much that every moment was fun!
They loved to sit and talk for hours at a time,
Davey and Jill had everything and everything was fine.
School began and Davey kept on loving Jill,
But soon loved new friends greatly, like Sam and Bob and Bill.
Kindergarten magic was a world of finding more,
At recess he met Mary Sue and thought, I have friends galore!
He smiled and played with everyone and felt his heart grow,
The more he loved and played the more joy he came to know.
One day a new girl named Mindy came to school,
He thought she'll be my friend this will be so cool.
But Mindy was shy and played with a boy she knew before,
She played but not with Davey, she was content not having more.
Davey frowned in frustration wanting to make a start,
He was eager to be her friend and share his loving heart.
So he set off on a mission of winning Mindy with care,
I bet if I try extra hard in time she'll want to share.
He baked cookies and wrote notes and left them at her door,
He said check the box for yes and we'll have fun galore!
Finally Mindy was intrigued and sent back the box checked yes,
She met him by the swing set in her very favorite dress.
They played and talked for hours, he showed her his missing tooth,
They were friends for sure and this became their truth.
Jill watched and thought now he wont need me,
Look at how they smile, it was simply meant to be.
She kicked a rock and grumbled looking at the sky,
Why she thought did Mindy move here, why oh why?
Meloncoly and defeated she felt replaced and undone,
Jill played but wasn't really having any fun.
Davey noticed her slouchy, grouchy sad way,
And thought I'll bring my friends together and we can all play.
He wrote notes to everyone and invited all to come share,
He decorated and shopped preparing with great care.
He walked to Jill's with joy thinking this will bring her delight,
But Jill said she wouldn't come and it didn't feel right.
He looked at her with concern and said can I ask why?
I love you and without you a part of me would die.
It's Mindy she said with sadness, she's enough and more.
I think she's your favorite, I think that for sure.
Davey scrunched his brows his mouth hung open wide,
He stammered you have always been with me standing by my side.
Friendship isn't favorites, it's not one or two or three,
Friendship is infinite that's what I've come to see.
I had to take a little time to make a new friend you see,
It was difficult for her to find the courage to love me.
Difficult isn't favorite it work that must be done,
It's done and now I want us all too share and have fun!
Now we can all come together and have even more,
You both can be my favorite! That would be a score!
Jill looked into his blue eyes and searching came to see,
He loves her just the same as he loves me!
He smiled and she hugged him, and marked the box with yes,
She went to his big party in her very favorite dress.
Mindy was shy and unsure but Jill tried real hard,
She took her to her favorite spot in Daveys back yard.
They stuck their feet in the pool and talked for quite a while,
Jill found out that Mindy had her own unique style.
They laughed and soon it was easy to love her just as he,
Jill felt so happy and rejoiced in what could be.
Love doesn't have limits it's bigger than the sky,
Sometimes it may be difficult but we love more if we try.
She saw Davey clearly and remembered he came for her to,
He tried for both of them, that is what a friend will do.
Davey came and joined them and together they had fun,
United and happy they played beneath the sun!
