Signed, T. FairyA Poem by Christina May Shanaberg
Written for my oldest daughter, Charisma Suzanne (Shanaberg) Sullivan, on October 18, 1987; the day she lost her first tooth!
SIGNED, T. FAIRY
My Dear Chari,
I am the tooth fairy;
You've lost your first tooth;
The first sign of passing youth;
I know how much it means to you
And I'll bet you wonder how I knew;
Well, I've been watching you grow
And, as you slept, I peeked under your pillow;
It seems like only yesterday,
You were a toothless little baby;
Now, you are a sweet young lady
And, at last, you needed me
To leave you a reminder of your joy
That you may use to buy a special toy;
Don't be sad that you did not see me,
Because fairies can only live if they are free;
Be happy knowing I give you my love,
My precious little dove.
