By My Side - Poem by niakeva thomas

Come back, wait one moment, please don't go running out that door,
There's a better way to handle this, let’s talk a little more,
Glass lies on the carpet, once whole but now it’s shattered,
A house once equal and full, now so empty and tattered,
Calm down mother dearest; please don't raise your hand to that child,
All she wanted was a little fun, no need to start acting wild,
Loud screams fill the house, 'don't do that' 'please stop',
How can our lives be tumbling down, when we used to be on top?
We used to be happy, good times were always near,
Perhaps if you would've held her, told her you'll was be here,
Perhaps if you would've kissed her, and said I love you every night,
You'd still have your baby girls', wrapped in your arms so tight,
Hold on there, wait big sister, this isn't the way to turn,
Though all hope seems lost, we'll get back what the fire burned,
Promise you'll come back, and when I awake you will be here,
Because mommy doesn't understand, the bad times are getting near,
Hold me in your arms, kiss me, wipe the tears I cried,
Perhaps if she did the same, you'd still be right here by my side,
