Wings to Fly
He beats her down with every move,
causing pain that he calls love.
Trying to keep her in "her place".
We all see the sadness in her face.
He keeps his jealousy shining bright
and never lets things get right
She carries on as nothing is wrong
trying hard to keep the family strong
Each day with him destroying everything
Even the the love they felt together.
Does he not know that love grows better
when it is not kept in a cage.
He must think she will always be there
Always bowing to his needs
When all is said and done, love will
die with hateful words said,
that can never be returned.
A flower blossoms with loving care
And dies with neglect.
Love needs to be nurtured with daily care
To reap the rewards of a beautiful view.
If only he knew what true love was about
Then he would not have to fuss and shout
But would know the ways to keep them safe
and let his family grow with love and care.
Don't wait til your family is gone
Before you realize how precious it is.
Keep them and love them
Let them grow with love, not hate
Be good to them before it is too late.
Give them wings to fly and grow
They will return to you, you know.
