Dear Heart

Mother didn't care

Father didn't know.

Now dear heart,

You are all alone.

 

No one notices,

Or really even cares.

They won't see you.

 

Just a broken girl.

That's all you are good for.

All alone on the corner of the street.

No one has ever loved you.

 

And no one will, except me, my dear.

I shall hold you.

Forever.

Until you can no longer stay.

 

I will be the last thing you see.

You will learn to love me.

 

You walk alone on the streets.

You are almost a ghost already.

See, wasn't that easy?

 

Fade away.

Fade away with me. 

I will be the last thing you see.

You will learn to love me.

 

Who am I you ask? Strange that you wonder that. I am the only thing that has ever loved you. The only thing that has cared.  

Mother didn't care

Father didn't know.

No one has ever loved you.

And no one will, except me, my dear.

I shall hold you.

Forever.

 

Goodnight dearie.
