My Little Princess

My first word
Was your name
My first thought
Was you

My first smile
Was thinking of you
My first laugh
Was just knowing you

But then it happened
That change occurred
Then you left
And so did my world

My world fell apart
My heart was broken
You took it away
Thought it would never be repaired when you left……………………………

You came back
My world grew back
My heart started healing
My thoughts started arising
My world was no longer dark
But clearing up……………..

Outside the school gates
The last to leave
Waiting in the cold
Waiting in the snow
Waiting till it was dark
And then you came

Apologises of traffic
Apologises of being busy
Apologises of the time
You came for your Princess

Weekend would come
You promised a day out
Again I would be waiting
Looking at the time and waiting
But you never did come

You came back
Back again to see me
You have come for your Princess
To see me again
You never did forget
You never stopped caring
You loved me all the time
But life stopped you coming
Coming to see me

Outside the school gates
The last to leave
Waiting in the cold
Waiting in the snow
Waiting till it was dark
And then you came

Apologises of traffic
Apologises of being busy
Apologises of the time
You came for your Princess

Weekend would come
You promised a day out
Again I would be waiting
Looking at the time and waiting
But you never did come

You come back
Back again to see me
You have come for your Princess
To see me again
You never did forget
You never stopped caring
You loved me all the time
But life stopped you coming
Coming to see me

You introduce me to her
A sister is she
Where did she come from
I never did know
Am I still your Princess
Or is she?

You come back
Back again
You come with your Princess
To play with her
You did forget
You stopped caring
You never loved me
And life never stopped you coming
Coming to see me

I wonder now
Who am I?
You tell me this
You tell me that
I can not hear
You say it too loud
You say it too much
I can not understand
Why can I not understand me?

I close my heart
I shut my eyes
I can not see you
I can not hear you
Leave me be

We fall apart
Apart for some time
The years roll by
I have some ups
I have some downs

I am no longer waiting
I am no longer crying
I am no longer wondering
I am no longer troubled

I have my own children
I have my own life

I pick my children from the school gates
And if I am late – I grow concerned
I could never leave them in the rain
I could never leave them in the snow
What sort of parent would I be?

Weekends are fun
I take my children out to the park
Or out to the beach
Or on holiday

We play and we laugh
I could never leave them
Waiting
Waiting for me
If I did
What sort of parent would I be?

The sort you were to me.

    • Thank you, I can read it, and think, that was me as a child. It no longer upsets me, I just acceept that that was part of my childhood. Thank you for your kind words.

      • It must have been very painful for you, my friend. I like to believe that those things which cause us pain help us to become larger and better in the long run. From what I see in your writing-you have become stronger and more capable. Nice to meet you.

  1. They have to otherwise what is the point of living ?You will just waste and life in misery and life is too short for that .
