Be All Right
by Yamato-chan

"This morning, like always, I rub my sleepy eyes
And energetically say "laugh!"
My head feels like it's still in a dream
As I brush my teeth
I wish on a star
That I could use magic
Sometimes I cry
Because it's so vexing"

It was another Saturday morning for eight-year-old Tk. He smiled, glad another morning
was upon him. "Today's my birthday!" he laughed, excited. He envisioned the things he could do
to celebrate. He hurridly brushed his teeth, hair, and got dressed. He ran out to the living
room where his mom sat, waiting for him. "Happy birthday, Takeru." she smiled.

"We're not alone in our world
But I have my aspirations
If we stay barefoot, I'm sure we'll be all right
At the top of the ferris wheel
We're near the sky
That same sky is watching over
Many people"

He ran out the door after breakfast. He was going to meet with his best friend Kari at
the nearby fair. She stood waiting by the Ferris Wheel. "Happy birthday, Tk!" she exclaimed,
hugging him. The boy pointed at the Ferris Wheel. "Wanna ride that first?" he asked
energetically. The girl clasped her hands and nodded. The ran up to the ticket-taker and seated
themselves in one of the buckets. The ride stopped at the top, and they sat together gazing at
the sky.

"Will today continue tomorrow?
If we wish for it, surely it will
Tomorrow we'll have good weather, and continue into my dreams
Let's make friends with the weather god
Look, if we shake hands, it's like telepathy
Let me see your smile, I'm sure it'll be all right"

Tk slowly walked with Kari back to his house. Her mother was waiting to pick her up. Tk shook
his friend's hand, never wanting the day to end and knowing she felt the same. As the rain
began to fall from the sky, the two friends parted. "I guess the Weather God likes me, he
waited until I had had fun for it to rain!" he laughed.

"Tomorrow we'll have good weather, and continue into my dreams
Let's make friends with the weather god
Look, if we shake hands, it's like telepathy
Let me see your smile
It'll always be all right..."

That night as the boy lay in his bed, he thought of Kari. Nothing bad would ever happen
to them as long as he could see her smile.
