A lullaby for the dearest

Standard

My sweetest mother,
Let me sing you a lullaby,
Since you never sang any to me
When I look into your eyes, I see a devil with white wings
You stood for years
Watching him rip me to pieces
You let him ruin me, then blame me for being broken
You’ve dragged me after you
Choked me with lies
And then lived the life you never had
You forgot about me
Learned how to erase the past
Now all you see are his big brown eyes
You’re a fool in love
And his wrath got you on your knees
You’ve devoted yourself to him
You’ve abandoned my soul
I’d sleep on your stomach
I’d cry for you for days
But those days are gone
And if I cry for you now,
It’s only out of hate.
