It's almost Christmas, and I remember, Daddy. I remember when you told when you heard me cry after I fell and hurt myself.
I remember, you promised me a mockingbird to help sing away my pain the next time I might fall. I know times are hard, and you might have forgotten, but I can feel myself falling again, because you fell. So I want the bird for you. if it sings to you, I will never fall again, I promise!!
Buy it please, or tell me where to find one and you can pay me back later. How does that sound?
