THE SILENT CRY OF A CHILD
© by Allison Katts 1991
[as a child]
Daddy don't you love me anymore.
I am sorry that I woke up my sister.
Sorry for being bad and for crying.
Sorry Daddy I'll cry into my pillow in silence.
I'll be quiet and not make a sound really Daddy
Daddy why don't you love me any more
What have I done that was so bad?
Maybe if I be good then he will love me .
Maybe Daddy will love me and hold me too.
Mommy doesn't have time to hold me in her arms.
Daddy what have I done to make you mad.
I'll shut my mouth and not make a sound.
I'll be quiet and not talk or laugh so loud.
I'll be good and play quietly and not cry.
Maybe then Daddy will love me too.
Mommy I don't feel well and have boo-boo ears.
Won't you hold me so I will feel better.
Sorry Mommy I won't bother you anymore.
I'll take my pillow and feel the warmth of it.
Maybe if I be quiet the pain will go away.
What have I done so bad to make them mad.
Maybe if I am good and quiet they will love me.
Maybe I cry far too much from boo-boo ears.
If I be quiet and not bother them they will love me then.
I'll be quiet as a mouse and not cry anymore
