Betrayal - Poem by CHARLES BAILEY

He: What are you thinking of my dear?

She: If a child could live without fear

He: You know God's grace lives in you

She: I wish I could start my life anew

He: Your heart within is the same as mine

She: I would give up any happiness I could find
If a child could be safe and warm
Snuggled within their mother's arms
To never know the pain that I went through
And kept it hidden from the world I knew

He: My heart was torn from within my soul
To know you were mistreated so
I wish I could take your pain upon myself
And free your spirit from it's captured self
I want to take your sorrow away
And give you happiness every day

She: It is too late, I can never be free
That memory will always linger with me

He: I cannot say I understand your pain

She: I only know it brought me shame

He: My love cannot erase that memory?

She: Only God's hand can set me free

(She to Herself)

He would sneak into my room at night
Pretending a father's love, he would hold me tight
He would touch me in places he should have never
He stripped my childhood from me forever

He: Is there anything I can do
To take this misery from you?

She: Just forgive me and love me
No matter what I do
But I cannot return that love to you


For all the children who suffered. I wish I could take your pain.
