The Picture

She handed me a paper
with a grin on her face
It was colored on messily
with no empty space
She was my little sister
who drew a picture for me
She wanted me to love it
but what is was
was a mystery
But I told her right away
"it's the prettiest picture I've ever seen
The colors look so perfect
blue, pink, and green!"
As I said those words
her smile turned to a frown
She told me quite sadly
"I was holding it upside down"
I told her it didn't matter
I still love it anyway
It was a gift from my baby sister
to brighten up my day
