Nobody Listened – Author Sue Lobo


Her mother didn’t listen, “I´m busy dear, go out & play,”

So dragging her teddy behind her, she went out & away,

Daddy worked too hard, “One day we´ll have some fun,”

So outside she went sad & searched for her friend the sun,

Her grandparents had long gone, to heaven up high & above,

Praying to God, “Please hug them & tell them I send my love.”


Love was cruel, husband had left; he said she was far too dull,

Leaving her feeling as empty as a boat with a broken old hull,

Her daughter laughed, all her way to an exotic & faraway land,

So she buried her head low, down in pillows & very deep sand,

Her son found the woman of his dreams, turned & said “bye”,

She felt life had passed her by & asked of it, “Please tell me why?”


She dragged her loneliness with her, like teddy, through empty life,

With every slow plodding step, from babe to mother & caring wife,

Nobody was ever listening, or even caring to what she had to say,

So she made friends with the silent night & the pretty golden day,

And she knew that on this old earth, she was her best & only friend,

She thanked God above, that on herself she could always depend.
