At the reading of my life

At the reading of my life

My soul to you tonight I bared
My heart with you tonight I shared
All you could do was laugh and joke
But in your laughter my heart broke

Within me lives the memory
of me a wee child on your knee
Back then a word from me was precious
You tended all my childhood wishes

Now somehow you have turned away
You no longer hear the words I say
You no longer seem to understand
I would still so like to hold your hand
and sit upon your lap once more
and be the child whom you adore.
