BANDAGE ROUND MY HEART

 

Listening to children talking about

Mummy and daddy fighting saying,

Mummy’s needs a bandage round her heart.

I would like to stop the hurting in my head.

 

When mum and dad start shouting, I scream

Are we always going to live this way?

Dad drinking?

And mum, will she always need that bandage?

 

I can’t stand them living this way.

Wish I could run away.

Run away but nowhere to go.

Wish I had that bandage round my heart.

 

My head is getting tighter.

Won’t, can’t stop screaming

It blocks out the tears in mummy’s heart.

 

I’ll go outside and listen to the wind.

Hear other people screaming.

I’m lost in this familiar street.

 

I can't help mummy.

Can't help tie that bandage round her heart.

It hurts so much when I think

They don’t love me anymore.

 

Someone, anyone

Can you tie a bandage

My mummy’s heartbroken and I’m scared.

Scared, that when i grow up, I'll treat my 

wife and children the same way

 

Today I don't need to tie a bandage,

Grown up now and always 

i find love and kindness 

works well and the screaming 

Never happens in our lives together.
