I heard the arguments,
I sat on the stairs and listened.
I'm sorry I know I shouldn't have,
But I wanted to know what was wrong.
If it was me, tell me.
I'll try to be good and do all my chores;
I'll even be nice to brother and sister,
I'll remember my manners and smiles to everyone.
I promise I'll be on my very best behaviour.
Please don't shout.
I don't like it when you fight.
I don't like to see you hit mummy, daddy.
Mummy please don't cry,
Daddy does love you.
Please don't leave daddy, we need you.
I need you.
Please come back.
Mummy hold me tight,
Tell me things are going to be okay.
