I was once a child. I had two parents who
cared for me. Every day they would wrap their
arms around me and tell me how much they
loved me.

Loved…

Life was perfect. Maybe not what others
Would consider sweet bliss, but I was happy.
Nothing in the world could ever touch me
Nothing…

But life isn't perfect, and neither are
people. For this reason, I cannot help
but say goodbye to everything I know.

Goodbye, Miss Evans, the little old lady from next door

Goodbye, Police officer, who greets me every morning.

Goodbye, little blue-jay, sitting on the branch just outside my window.

Goodbye, Charlie, the little tabby cat that lives under the house.

Goodbye, Mother, who after you lost your love, you became an alcoholic.

Goodbye, Father, who left a desperate mother and me to the deadly grips of debt.

I was once a child…

Who would demand a beautiful song to
be played from my music box as I rested
my head to fall asleep along with a
goodnight kiss.

I was once loved…

Once…

Now, my parent's no longer love one another,
So how am I to bring myself to love
them in return?

I was once loved…

Now, all that love my parents gave me rest
Six feet under the ground.

I was once loved…

Only

Once.
I don't know where this came from. But I decided that it was going up~
