Sweet little girl with eyes wide and blue
Sweet little girl with nothing to do
Look at her wonder round looking for you
She looks for her father to hold her hand
Instead she gets a mobile, she doesn’t understand
She’s told to walk home
She wishes someone cared
As she sits in the empty house so scared
Sweet little girl with eyes wide and blue
Sweet little girl with nothing to do
She locks all the doors
Keeping the dangers out
For she is a smart girl
It’s said without a doubt
A knock on the door
She jumps from the floor
To see both her parents who she does adore
But they walk on by with barely a glance
She wants to tell them stories but they don’t give her the chance
Sweet little girl with eyes wide and blue
Sweet little girl with nothing to do
She wonders alone to her own little room
She closes her eyes so wide and blue
She loves them so much so how is it fair
That her parents just don’t seem to care

    very sad poem..almost brought a tear to my eyes...a lesson to be learned by
    Moms and Dads to spend more time with your children, even if it is after a
    hard day at work...you can never get those days back... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
