    She spent her days playing down the creek.
    Down behind the houses, climb the fence,
    push through the pine trees, tumble down the hill.
    Down there I was all alone, turning over rocks,
    and searching for snakes or frogs.
    I hear someone rustling through the trees.
    I look around there's no one I can see.
    She draws nearer too me,
    Am I not alone?
    This is someone I have pushed away many times before.
    Why does she keep coming back to me?
    It's time I face my fears.
    A little girl walks right by me. Skinned knees.
    She is a little chubby with matted and knotted thin blond hair.
    Her skin is darkened from the sunlight beating her all day
    and maybe some bruises and dirt.
    I followed her down the leaf covered path,
    I'm running after her.
    We are deep into the forest,
    I need to turn back, I am too afraid.
    But then she vanishes before my eyes.
    So, I return to the creek and flip the stones
    Catching water spiders.
    Maybe next time she won't run away and
    maybe next time I can face her
