A Grazed Knee

Life was so much easier when the most pain you felt was a grazed knee
Mummy would come running over and kiss it better for me
She'd tell me to stop my tears to be brave and to be strong
She'd tell off that naughty floor and that was it the pain was gone!

No more tears, and no more pain as if it had never actually been
Mummy just took me inside and wiped the graze clean
She put a plaster over it and told me that it would mend
Then I'd go off running again playing with a friend

If only it was as easy now when you feel pain, you surely must agree
That life was so much easier when the most pain you felt was a grazed knee
