She'll Come Back

they had left the window open

with only a thin blanket

to cover them in the night

and so, the cold overtook them

 

when you told the Darlings

that it was called “Neverland”

is it because when you die

you can never go back

 

you didn’t know Peter,

that they had not died

they were just sleeping

for a few months

 

she’ll return, Peter

one day, she’ll come back,

she’ll find the second star to the right,

and fly straight on till morning

after all, to die

would be an awfully big adventure
