Love Of A Child - Poem by Dianne jennifer Stephens

Why did you go, when I begged you to stay
Tears of sadness, fall to the ground
Heart aches with pain
To painful, to live
Bottle of pills, they stare at me
Neon lighting there calling me

Reminicing through life
Beautifull baby, cut lip at three
School prefect at ten
First concert in my teens
Dating at eighteen
Married at twenty three

Now I look at my child
Whose journey, I may never see
Pills still calling me
You run and cuddle me
Those words, I love you mummy
Thats enough for me
Toilet flushes, pills no longer calling me
