When Someone Listened

Regina Puckett

At one time, Daddy’s little princess and Mommy’s little girl

But it’s been a long time since I’ve been someone’s entire world

All too soon childhood is just a pleasant memory-a time to reflect

When everything you said or did wasn’t something people would reject

People hung on your every word and cherished every thought

You were kept safe in the family circle-a prize that can’t be bought

Now every day’s a struggle and every love has to be fought for

Because people are too ready to shove you from their heart’s door

Oh to be a child again when all I had to do was laugh and play

To go back to a time when someone listened to what I had to say
