Bye Bye Baby

Funny poems for kids illustration for poem Bye Bye Baby
There's a time when kids get too grown-up for dolls... Or is there?
Bye Bye Baby

Baby dolls are just for kids.
I’m way beyond them now.
Baby Lucy was my friend,
but I really don’t see how.

She’s just a little plastic thing
some factory worker made.
I used to let her sleep with me
but that’s when I was eight.

Today I’m nine and all grown up.
Baby Lucy’s in my past.
Of course, I miss her just a bit
but I’m sure that won’t last.

It’s time to go to bed. Alone.
My heart is filled with sorrow.
Oh, forget it all, she needs me now.
I’ll be grown up tomorrow.
