From the Eyes of a Child

Mommy!!! Daddy!!!
It’s late in the night,
Please stop screaming,
Please don’t fight.
My body is trembling,
I am terrified so,
I feel like I am sinking,
Into an abyss below.
All I want for you to do,
Is hold me in your arms,
Tell me a funny story,
Or sing me a song.
I know you both love me,
And want for me what’s best,
Yet when you fight like you do,
It brings out the worst in me instead.
Mom, I know you are tired,
From driving me all day,
From school to swimming
To Art and ballet.
Dad, I know you are tired ,
From working extra hours,
To buy me the latest gadgets,
And Mom a brand new car.
But, Mommy all I wanted
Was to be with you all day.
Read a book, paint a picture
Or just sit down and play.
And Daddy I ‘ll ┬ábe just as happy
Without the new toys,
Crayons and a ball,
Would bring me just as much joy.
So tomorrow come home early,
Let’s all go to park,
Where I can run around freely,
Until it’s after dark.
Then together we’ll have dinner,
On a table set right,
I promise I’ll eat my vegetables,
And will not waste a bite.
Now don’t fight Mommy and Daddy
Let’s all curl up in bed,
Play tickle monster with me,
Or have a pillow fight instead.
Having you by my side,
Is all that I need,
To make my world perfect
And memories memorable indeed.
