scissors

Mama was a wise woman
when i was a little girl she always knew
just the right thing to say
to keep me safe and well
and out of the cruel world’s way
i would listen solemnly as she would sagely say,
look before you leap-
don’t play with matches-
don’t run with scissors-
look both ways
before you cross the street-
and always say your prayers….
but the one thing she didn’t tell me
was never to give my heart away
to the man i thought had hung the moon
for moonlight changes things
she never told me not to give my heart away
to the one man who couldn’t be trusted
not to break it
she never told me loving you was like
running with the scissors
oh, how i wish she had……..
