“I want her to sleep over,”
Said Mei of her best friend, Eve.
So permission was granted
To allow Eve’s folks a reprieve.

While the girls ate spaghetti
and shared the same bed,
Mom and Dad ate fondue
and toasted the day they were wed.

Their little eyes soon drooped,
two brown and two blue,
And the princesses whispered,
“Good night to you.”

Mei’s mom read them stories
and showed Eve the bed where they’d stay,
But the girls wandered downstairs
to wind up in bed with her anyway.

The morning sun rose,
and the fun had to come to an end.
But both princesses still talk about
Their first sleepover with their first best friend.
