To Take Our Child

 ©1995 Nick Robinson (FTH Ch 2, pg 18)


The slander, the lies

These things you say

To take our child

With you to stay


The hurt, the pain

You’ve put me through

Have shown your true colours

And shown the real you


But it’s your typical need

To want all or nothing

That’ll cost a Dad his daughter

And the daughter his loving


You play so noble

With our childs best needs

And disguise your selfishness

By blaming it on me


But keeping Jess for yourself

Is all that you care

But you’re denying her her Dad

And for Jess, that’s not fair

The End
