But never just simply taking a shower

But thinking how much it would cost

One day she would not worry anymore

They would watch the stars light up the sky

Have dinner and never hold the bill up to the light again

Confident that we could afford it

Maybe it’s selfish to some to want so much for myself and my family

But this girl want all the world could give her

And she would get it

Her pages just began to turn
