~An Hour With You~

They're at it once again
The screaming and yelling goes on
I can't rest or sleep
When will the violence be done

Daddy comes home from work
Mommy is gone once again
She drags in at 4 or 5 a.m.
Daddy screams, "Where have you been?"

Mommy has a bad smell
She can't even walk straight
The arguing goes on for hours
Is this to be my fate?

I do not understand all this
I huddle under my blankie and cry
I'm so afraid Mommy won't come home
I try to sleep, I really try

Daddy says, Mommy needs help
She says, "I don't have a problem"
I'm not very happy anymore
Peace and quiet, I sure need some

Mommy used to help me say my prayers
That was before she started to drink
Daddy's real worried, He says,
Mommy's teetering on the brink

Mommy needs to ask for help
Daddy says she needs to hit bottom
I do not know what that means
All I know is I feel real numb

I want my Mommy back
The one I used to know
The one who played with me
Dear God, Where did she go?

Please Mommy, please come back
I need you to hug and kiss me
I want to feel what we once had
I want us to be a real family

Get help Mommy, We love you
We can only wait so long
God will help you if you ask
Come back to us where you belong
