there is a history of pink crafted boxes, flowers and roses, bangles and gem tattoos.
There's the idea of being "Daddy's Little Girl" and "Mommy's Princess,

There are tiaras, fairies and magical flower lands,
There are pink things.
costumes and clothes,
boxes of accessories and whatnot,
and there is still me.
The wee little me inside.
Sometimes I wish I were younger than I am today.
