Missing her

She was small
and cheeky
bright as a button
and sang like an angel

She laughed
and joked
was always there
always noticed
but never
the star

We all loved her
all wanted her

as a friend

but somehow
she slipped
through the net

when she wasn’t there
we missed her
missed her fun
missed her voice
missed her

Small
brown
and pretty

She was
our sparrow

I hope she comes back
