Let Them Love Me
I guess I shouldn't be so anxious standing
Today I get my new Mom and Dad - today
I'm going home!
God , please let them love me - I will
try so hard to be good.
I've never had a Mom and Dad to love me
as they should.
God, please don't let them hit me like
my other mom used to do-
Or let me go hungry - or cry all
God , please let them love me - I'm so
scared and alone.
My little heart has never known the
love I thought was gone.
I never want to go back to the other
life I had-
Mom, she drinked alot and Daddy-
he was bad.
Both of them would hit me alot - Dad
would touch me too-
He would reach and grab me -
do things he shouldn't do!
God, please let them love me- my
new Mom and Dad-
Give me the love in my life that
I've never had.
I've been here for awhile - watched
other kids come and go-
Wondering who would want ME-
I'm not much , I know!
Finally the day has come - I'm
waiting by the door-
Oh PLEASE God, let them love me-
I've never had that before.
I'll do anything they ask- I want
to be their little girl-
I've always lived in a dark and ice
Oh God , there's a car coming -
I'm so scared, you see-
Oh please, please dear God - let
them love me!
