My mother I miss you

I have never talked to anyone about me,
How scared I am when it’s getting dark,
I haven’t shared anything about me,
How much I care for you even though if I work,
But you know, don’t you my mother?
You know everything about me my mother,
My mother…
Never leave me alone in crowds,
I’ll lose my way back home,
Never send me far away from you,
Where you won’t even remember me,
Am I that bad, my mom?

Whenever when dad use to swing me into the air,
I always search for you,
I always hoping that you will save me when I fall from the air,
I don’t tell anything to dad,
But I get terrified from him,
I never show my pain on my face,
But my heart is scared of him,
But you know, don’t you my mother?
You know everything about me my mother,
My mother…

Last few words: 
Life sucks without mom.

Hi schrey, your poem is full of pain, I can feel it. My only crit is that it's a bit too wordy. I tweaked the last strophe, just an idea, take or toss. The title, content and spacing are fine. Enjoyed, all the best, Gracy

When dad used to swing me in the air,
I always search for you,
I'm hoping you'll save me when I fall,
I don’t tell dad,
I get terrified of him,
I never show pain on my face,
my heart is scared of him,
You know, don’t you mother?
You know everything about me mother,
My mother…
