As she sits & stares at the clock.
Wishing & wanting for someone to stop.
Knowing her family soon will be there.
The ones who truely love her & care.
As seconds turn to minutes & minutes to hours.
She thinks of all their magical powers.
For her their visits are far too short.
But she can't wait to laugh and snort.
So she sits and waits for them to come.
Knowing it will be lots & lots of fun.
