What Could You Say


What could you say,
if your daughter ever got raped?
or say your son was a mass murderer,
or had a life you couldn't escape?
What could you say,
if your body was so broken,
because your father beat you,
and called you names that remain unspoken?
what could you say
if you fell into depression
became bulimic or anorexic
because of your body's imperfections?
what could you say,
if tear came to my eyes?
would you hold me tightly in your arms?
or simply watch me cry
what could you say
if my words came to an end?
Would you help me recover from broken hopes
and help me make amends
what would you say
if I were never here
would you continue on with everyday life
as I slowly disappear?

We never truly ever forget those who always hold a special place in our heart Lisa, all we can do while they are with us is hope they know right from wrong and live accordingly or be responsible for their misdeeds and accept the consequences. Personally,  I pray that life brings everyone some happy moments, love to be shared with others, reasons to laugh, peace in their hearts and belief that God will be there to welcome us home when our time comes if we lived a kind, caring life.  Arlene (AJ)
