Childhood memories

What did I see, Mummy?
What did I hear?
I’ve lost my voice, Mummy,
I’m frozen by fear.

You said I was loved, Mummy,
Yet I can’t feel a thing,
No memory to hold on to,
No love song to sing.

I need to grow up, Mummy,
Stop shielding my eyes.
What pain have I witnessed?
Oh, Mum, please don’t cry.

Whatever has happened,
Is a thing of the past,
And the love we share now,
Mummy, we’ll never out last.
