My daughter, the songwriter

First it was plays. Now she's moved on to songs. Rachel, who is eight, has decided to write a song. The topic of her song. Love. Peace. And little sisters.

A Song about Love and Peace

(peace signs and hearts adorn the paper)

Sometimes I remember
When we were kids
You want to always fight

I just wish we loved each other
And we had peace
I wish you weren't mean
That made my days worse
Stop fighting me, sister

I thought we were gonna have
Love and peace the rest of our life
Well, you thinked wrong!
Fine, be your mean self
I'll get you back
I promise.

Of course you're not hearing it the way she sings it - with passion and regret and a little bit of revenge at the end.
