Don’t hurt my Melodie
Because she is fragile and she’s weak.
Don’t ruin her song
For her music is for when things starting looking bleak.
For Melodie is the child within that cries when she is scolded
She kicks and screams to stop from being molded
Into the perfect abiding child
Who can’t express feelings, needs and wants
to an adult who acts very non chalant.
So don’t hurt my Melodie, for she’s the keeper at my gate,
she let’s me know when I am sad, or when she is feeling great! ! !
Don’t hurt my Melodie, by telling her simple little lies
because she can detect the truth from your simply alibis.
For you can’t fool Melodie for she is the child within
she knows when you are faking it with your forced little grin.
