GOODBYE, CARE BEAR By Anna, age 9











Its black eyes 
shimmer and
lighten the
room.
A pink flower
fades
on its belly.
I leave it in
the box
my mom
gave me.
She said,
this box
is the
leaving
stuff.
I pulled off the lid.
At the bottom of the box,
a bottle of
cute hot
pink
nail
polish
glanced
at me.
The necklace wrapped
around its neck
shimmered. 
Too light
to come with us
to 
America.
