When I was a child

When I was a child

I fell asleep to my mother being abused

When I was a child

I fell alseep to my mothers alcohol overuse

We never saw eye to eye on anything

Dispite the torture she faced in the night

She would always get up and work for the day

She would always make sure we were alright

As a child,I never realized how vulnerable and priceless

my mothers love and protection would be

Now that she's gone, I hope she's looking down on me

She'll never know how much she'll be missed

I love you mom, Thanks for the protection

When I was a child
