They were merely a gift,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
Everyone made fun of them,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
Yet, she wore them,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
She danced day and night,
In The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
As the months passed they began to fade,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
They hung on the back of the door waiting,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
Then one day they were removed,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
They were put into a cardboard box and sealed tightly,

At The Little Red Pointe Shoes.

As the mother looked closely at the shoes she remembered something,
About The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
She pulled back the padding inside of them,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
Engraved inside was the name Lacey, A smile formed on her face as she held
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
She knew that they were hers, and they had come back to her,
The Little Red Pointe Shoes.
