A Child’s Wish

They craved for a mom, someone for their dad
So he would no longer be lonely or sad.
He met someone who loved them or so they thought
But in all the love, the lies were not caught.

She looked in his eyes and promised to take us for her own
Yet plotting and scheming. She's bad to the bone.
Blood does not make you family. It's the heart through and through,
But if the stepparent does not love you, then what can you do?

Her faces of evil masked over in the public eye
But behind closed doors it lurks, my oh my.
We wanted a mother and for dad a wife
But never, oh never, did we think it would ruin our life.

So you crawl in your soul, you hide in your room
Under the covers, away from all the gloom,
Wishing to go back to that place in time
When you made that wish for a mother divine.
