It is not made of straw It is not made of plastic Of metal or of fabric It is not made by hands It is not filled with fluff
It’s made of one long year, Of laughter and of tears Of faith and disappointment Of courage and of fear By those I hate and those I love
I’ve held this doll so very close
No soul on earth Can fix this doll for me And I have got So many toys indeed
But just before You throw the doll away Tear off the lace of hope
And keep it safe.
