Poems - Lonely Little Girl - She Was a Sad And Sitting Alone Child

Source

Another Student


She was so quiet when I saw her

Sitting alone that first day

She looked so sad and lonely

I wondered what she had to say

I walked up to her slowly

Touched her on the shoulder

Her tears began to fall

I bent down to hold her

She cried for a long time

I brushed away her last tear

She seemed a little less sad

To know that I was near

I tried to get her to talk

To tell me why she was so sad

She opened up just a little

Told me about the life she had

She was in her fourth foster home

She was only six years old

Her mother had died when she was born

Her dad was in prison she was told

She had missed her first year of school

In the hospital once again

The cancer was in remission

She was just looking for a friend

She was with me three more years

Learned so very fast

Finally found a permanent home

One where she could last

She talked to me last week

Now she’s grown with a little boy

I told her once again

That she was still my pride and joy
