SKYLAR JADE AND THE MAGICAL FORREST

ONCE UPON A TIME, IN A MAGICAL FORREST WORLD
OF BUTTERFLIES AND FAIRIES AND OTHER BEAUTIFUL THINGS ,
LIVED A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE FAIRY PRINCESS,
 HER NAME WAS SKYLAR JADE,
NOW SKYLAR WAS THE LITTLEST FAIRY IN ALL THE LAND 
AND ALSO THE DAUGHTER OF THE FORREST KING.
SHE LIKED TO SPEND HER DAYS CHASING BUTTERFLIES
 AND WHEN SHE WAS TIRED FROM THAT ,
SHE LIKED TO TAKE A LONG NAP
 IN ONE THE BEAUTIFUL GARDENS
THAT ADORNED THE MAGICAL FORREST.

ONE DAY AS SHE WAS NAPPING ,
SHE HAD A WONDERFUL DREAM
 OF A LAND FAR FAR AWAY,
IN THE DREAM SHE WAS WALKING DOWN A STREET
IT WAS ALL PAVED IN GOLD,
AND THERE WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF ALL GARDENS
THAT SHE HAD EVER SEEN.
AND OH HOW PRETTY THE BUTTERFLIES WERE
SHE RAN AFTER A BIG BRIGHTLY COLORED ONE,
IT WAS LIKE NO OTHER BUTTER FLY
 IN THE FORREST WHERE SHE LIVED.

NOT PAYING MUCH ATTENTION TO ANYTHING ELSE
 BUT THE BUTTERFLY, SHE RAN RIGHT INTO SOMEONE.
OH I AM SO SORRY SHE SAID,
 MY NAME IS SKYLAR, WHAT'S YOURS,
 AND CAN YOU TELL ME WHERE WE ARE?
I SEEMED TO HAVE GOTTEN LOST,
I LIVE IN THE MAGICAL FOREST
AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS PLACE BEFORE.
THE STRANGER SAID, MY NAME IS JESUS
 AND THIS IS MY KINGDOM, BUT I JUST CALL IT HEAVEN.
BUT I AM SURE YOU WILL LIKE IT HERE
 THERE ARE A LOT OF CHILDREN HERE,
MAYBE SOMEDAY YOU CAN COME BACK.

ABOUT THAT TIME SKYLAR HEARD SOMEONE
CALLING HER, SHE TURNED AROUND TO SEE WHO IT WAS
SHE SAID, THAT'S MY MOMMY,
SHE WILL BE UPSET IF SHE CAN'T FIND ME SHE WORRIES SO MUCH,
BUT AS SHE TURNED BACK AROUND TO THE STRANGER,
HE WAS GONE AND SHE WAS BACK IN THE MAGICAL FORREST.
THAT'S STRANGE SHE SAID, I MUST HAVE BEEN DREAMING,
BUT ALTHOUGH IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE,
 IT'S GOOD TO BE HOME.
ABOUT THAT TIME HER MOMMY CAME UP AND SAID,
THERE YOU ARE, I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU 
AND SHE GAVE HER A BIG HUG .

SKYLAR WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE HER MOMMY TOO,
SHE WAS SUCH A WONDERFUL MOMMY,
SKYLAR KNEW SHE WAS A LUCKY GIRL.
SHE SAID MOMMY ,A
S I WAS NAPPING IN THE GARDEN,
I DREAMED OF A BEAUTIFUL LAND ,
EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THEN OURS.
I MET A MAN NAMED JESUS THERE
 HE SAID THIS LAND WAS HIS KINGDOM ,
AND HE CALLED IT HEAVEN,
ISN'T THAT A BEAUTIFUL NAME.

HE SAID THERE ARE LOTS OF LITTLE CHILDREN LIKE ME
 AND THAT MAYBE SOMEDAY I CAN GO THERE AGAIN,
IT WAS REALLY GREAT MOMMY
SKYLAR'S MOMMY SAID,
WELL THAT SOUNDS WONDERFUL HONEY
BUT I WOULD RATHER YOU STAY HERE
FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN.
SKYLAR SAID, OK MOMMY I WILL
BUT ONE DAY,
 I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT BEAUTIFUL PLACE
 AGAIN AND CHASE THE BUTTERFLIES AROUND.

BUT UNTIL I FIND IT AGAIN, I WILL
JUST DREAM ABOUT IT WHILE I AM NAPPING
,AND MOMMY MAYBE SOMEDAY YOU CAN GO THERE TOO.
SKYLAR'S MOMMY SMILED AND KISSED HER ON THE FOREHEAD,
SHE SAID THAT WOULD BE NICE SKYLAR,
AND THANKS FOR INVITING ME .
OK SKYLAR SAID
AND THEN SHE WAS OFF,
CHASING THE BUTTERFLIES AGAIN
AS SHE WAS THINKING, I LOVE MY HOME SO MUCH
BUT IT WOULD BE SO NICE
TO FIND THAT SPECIAL KINGDOM AGAIN SOMEDAY,
THAT BEAUTIFUL PLACE CALLED HEAVEN.

A FEW WEEKS WENT BY AND SKYLAR JADE ,
WAS ENJOYING THE MAGICAL FORREST AS ALWAYS,
SHE WAS CHASING THE BUTTERFLIES AND HAVING THE BEST TIME ,
THAT SHE'D HAD IN A LONG TIME,
SKYLAR'S MOMMY CAME TO BRING HER SOME LUNCH 
AND TO CHECK ON HER, SHE NOTICED THAT
SKYLAR SEEMED A LITTLE DIFFERENT
 NOT HER USUAL CHEERY SELF, 
WHAT'S WRONG HONEY,MOMMY SAID TO SKYLAR
I JUST FEEL TIRED MOMMY THAT'S ALL
 PLEASE DON'T WORRY ,
MOMMY SAID I WON'T HONEY I PROMISE.

THEN THEY SAT IN ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL 
GARDENS AND ATE LUNCH,
AS THEY SAT THERE SKYLAR SAID MOMMY 
REMEMBER THAT DREAM I HAD,
ABOUT THE FAR AWAY LAND ,
AND THAT NICE MAN NAMED JESUS ,
WELL MOMMY  I SAW HIM TODAY
,AND HE SAID I COULD COME AND SPEND SOME TIME IN
HIS WONDERFUL KINGDOM CALLED HEAVEN
 IF IT WAS OK WITH YOU, THE BUTTERFLIES
ARE SO BEAUTIFUL THERE MOMMY ,
AN THERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL WITH HIM ,
I DON'T REMEMBER HER NAME
BUT SHE SAID IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL
 IF I COULD GO PLAY WITH HER
SKYLAR LOOK UP AT HER MOMMY 
AND SAW A TEARDROP FALL FROM HER EYE,
AND SHE SAID DON'T CRY MOMMY ,
I NEVER WANT YOU TO BE SAD.
YOU ARE THE BEST MOMMY IN THE WHOLE WORLD
AND I LOVE YOU MOMMY, VERY ,VERY MUCH.

THEN SKYLAR LAID HER HEAD DOWN ON HER MOMMY'S LAP,
AND MOMMY RUBBED HER HEAD AND RAN HER FINGERS THRU
SKYLAR'S LONG BEAUTIFUL HAIR, THEN SHE SAID
IT'S OK SKYLAR IF YOU WANT TO GO,
BUT REMEMBER I LOVE YOU OK,
I WILL MOMMY SKYLAR SAID, 
THEN SHE CLOSED HER EYES
AND DRIFTED OFF TO SLEEP
AS SKYLAR'S MOMMY WATCHED HER SLEEP 
SHE FELT BLESSED
FOR HAVING SUCH A SWEET LITTLE PRINCESS.
AND SHE WHISPERED IN SKYLAR'S EAR AS SHE SLEPT
ENJOY THE GARDENS AND BUTTERFLIES MY DARLING,
I WILL MISS YOU .

 

THE END.
