A hurried mother drags her daughter 
Through the busy mall
The little one's eyes water
Like she's about to bawl
"Now, stop your crying,"
Her mother scolds
And with a sniffle
The little girl does as she's told
She looks at her mother 
And pulls her arm away
Mommy continuing to rush along
Not stopping to notice her daughter gone astray
The child scurries back to the toy store
A smile lighting up her pudgy little cheeks
"I'm finally free!"
The little girl shrieks 
I wonder if they ever found each other again
And what mommy said to the little one once found
I know that's scary for a parent to think
But you really have to show your child that you care
Keep your on them tight
Or they might just disappear away from you like air.

The End
