My Red Cap and Me

BY JELA OLASO

Once upon a time,

when I was a little girl,

I found a red cap.

 

And so, I wore it!

 

I loved my red cap,

my first love ever.

We stayed together.

We walked together.

We sang and danced together.

Always, forever.

 

Until one day—

 

My mom,

li’l brother and I

rode a tricycle, and

all of a sudden,

My red cap—

it flew away!

 

So I began to cry.

My tears wouldn’t stop,

leaving me heartbroken

from what I just saw.

 

My pretty red cap,

gone and lost forever.

My first heartbreak,

I won’t ever feel the same way.

I’ll never forget.
