A girl and her dish

In an old house 
where no one dares to go
There sits a small dish
That gives off a small glow

A girl with no family
'Cept for an uncle and aunt
Ventures to this house 
To get away from their rant

She climbs the stairs
Holding a bow
and she finds the small dish
Where the room seems to glow

It's old and it's cracked
It could be sold for cents
But to this girl, it's value,
Has endless expense

'Fore this was her dish
When she was young
She lived here its true
Her mom cooked and her dad sung...

This once was a happy home
Before the car crash
It tore their family apart
With an unsettling smash

And just like that
The parents were gone
With only their child alive
In the dim light of dawn

She now ties the bow 
Around the small dish
Puts it back on the table
And makes a small wish

Her wish came true
And she was glad for that wish
But when it was hard
She thought of the dish

In an old house
Where no one dares to go
There sits a small dish
Tied in a soft satin bow

Its old and its cracked
Its cracked
It could be sold for cents
But to this girl, its value,
Has endless expense
