To the child of a alcoholic parent ..
yes i see you there hiding in the corner trying to block out the shouting.. and the strangers that come to you at night
You poor soul ! you have the weight of the world on those tiny shoulders of yours, i know this isn't your burden to bare, you've become the parent and he the child ..please child i do feel your pain, but this is a addiction you can never tame ..
With tears in your eyes you wake everyday to face the horror of what is your life .. All you want is the calm and the security there, the warm love of a parent.
The stale smell of cider in the air becomes a scent you can no longer bare .. suffocating your tiny soul
Dear child i know you feel there is no hope,
your parent has taken the oath
to live with the bottle until death do they part
Dear sweet young child i promise you this, you will make it out of here..
I see the way you look at me as to say how can you promise this ..
Because dear child you are me and i am here loving, breathing and loving
