Poetry/Short Stories

should have..

Saw her cry

Saw her reach out for help

Saw her crawl

Should have helped!

She needed me

She needed you

She needed us

Should have helped!

Longed to be loved

Longed to be heard

Longed to be one of us

Should have helped!

Desired to smile

Desired to dream

Desired to hope

Should have helped!

Saw her turn away

Saw her fade away

Should have helped!
