Dolly, Don’t You Cry 

It’s ok Dolly, don’t you cry

Mama said everything’s 

Going to be alright


Daddy’s gone

Left without a good-bye

Don’t worry

I’ll hold you tight


Momma’s sad

Said he’s gone for good

She’s says now everything

Will be just as it should


I know Dolly, I’m sad too

But I promise

I’ll never leave you

  2. Beautifully worded with a delicious flow.
    I’ve just finished reading a book ‘Broken wing Butterfly’ a gorgeous book for teenagers who have gone through divorce.

    Nice rhythm to this and really deep in a sort of light way.
