CHILD ABUSE ~ at the hands of his grandmother
Today there will be silence,
no crying will you hear.
I didn't mean to anger you,
I just wanted you near.
Today there will be sleep again,
I won't cry out in vain.
The nights I needed comforting,
were filled with hurt and pain.
How could someone so big and strong,
strike out at little me?
I was a gift, your little boy
unwanted now, I see.
Today there will be love at last,
l on angels wings I'll soar.
Way up high, above the clouds,
through heavens golden doors.
So, say a prayer for me
for the life I'll never know
I just wish you could have cared for me
for I would have loved you so
