Day 6 April P-A-D prompt: Don't blank blank
Don’t hit me again,
I promise to be good.
I’ll try harder to do what I should.
Don’t leave us,
I know it’s my fault.
I promise I’ll change whatever I’m doing wrong.
Don’t hurt Mommy,
She was just trying to help.
I’ll be good so you don’t have to fight.
Don’t cry Daddy,
It will be okay.
We’ll all try harder if you’ll just stay.
Don’t forget us Daddy,
I love you, and we’ll be right here.
I’m sorry I made you go.
Please come back for my kindergarten play.
I promise I won't cry...

This one really made me cry. I do hope it's not autobiographical.ReplyDelete
My goodness! What a visual picture you've painted with this one. Definitely pulled on my heart strings.ReplyDelete
Brilliant... but put a lump in my throat too.ReplyDelete
Yeah, you've really got inside this kids head.ReplyDelete
Thank you all for such encouraging comments. That you were moved by this means more to me than I can express.ReplyDelete
Well done, Gloria...the progression was well captured and I agree with the others--puts a lump in the throat.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much....I really appreciate your comments. :)ReplyDelete
