This Awful Secret

Posted on 14/09/2010 by admin

Just eight years old, an innocent
Too young to have this torment
Love from granddad, or that’s what he said
If that’s so, why do I have nightmares in bed?

Too afraid to tell mum or dad
He said if they knew, they would think I was so bad
My body so sore, it can’t be right
I’m so afraid each day and night

Now I’m grown, but still the nightmares come
I wish with all my heart I could just up and run
Like granddad has done, a new life he’s made
Whilst I’m still here waiting for the pain to fade
