The Blue Jinns
Jimmy & Kelly
Another trip to the big white building today
Jimmy did not much like getting up with still no sun
But it was not that hard, since there was no other way
No other way to let Kelly know�know she is the one
The one that shines his day
Despite various spits and hair pulls between 'em....
She's the one whose light is a special ray
She can annoy, but there were smiles with her tricks
Yes as a sister she was not at all too bad
She was only four years old, not his mature six
But these hospital trips could truly make anybody feel sad
Said she had cancer of some kind
Jimmy could not really understand the name
Only wanted to reach out and find
Find some hope in a giant sea full of worries and fear
Maybe make her and mom and dad smile?
Now they each looked far off and not at all near
With soon to be surgery, they would all be here awhile....
Jimmy wanted to shine a light in this place
But how? What was the way to bring some sun?
Then luckily he recalled his funny face
The twist of his lips and puff of his cheeks with his tongue way out
Always made Kelly laugh, laugh away anything bad, as a matter of fact
He started the face with a yelp, ending all doubt
Any doubts that now was truly the time to act
At first Kelly was in a bit of a stun
Jimmy's old hilarious face was back
Quickly her startle transformed into smile filled fun
She grinned, then laughed and light came to her eyes
Jimmy as well as their parents and even a nurse next to the bed
All noticed and felt the feeling in the room was only on the rise
Finally Jimmy stopped the crazy distortions of his head....
Kelly's smile was a wonderful medicine, to her and to all
Making the dark welcome the light
Rising high, so high never again to fall......
