song for ari

from by ÒOR



for my little sister, who has has effortlessly made my life brighter since the day she set sail as a real, tiny human.


when my baby falls, she gets right back up
sun brings out her freckles, i stick 'em in my cup
doesn’t shed a tear when she falls, whispers ‘i love you too’ over phone calls, she’s so tall
caught her writing about seasons on sidewalks, she's so tall

i want to say it loud, i know we won't fall down
my hair's gray
gonna grow so old, who knows where we will lay
i wanna say it so loud!
and run around the yard until my hair's gray
we'll grow so old, i'll never know well
but i love my baby, she grew so tall!
shrink her down into a baby, she's so small
she will sail on here by my side right 'til i die
my baby’s writing about seasons and whispering over phone calls
