… Years have gone by!

Something is so wrong.

The only way I can laugh,

Is to cry first,

Sometimes I even sing,

Sing until I die.

Other times I play tricks,

Play games, or tease;

Or call someone a silly name!

My other self forever is gone!


… The occasions are there;

But does anyone care?

I see nothing funny.

I can’t even smile like a dummy.

Not even once in a while!

I am so alone, just me, the only one,

Who faces day after day,

In the same old way!


… I think about what to eat…

I even adjust the heat…

I pick up the mail…

And drink ginger ale…

I even watch TV;

But I can never see!

Always be,

Just me…

But not the me,

That used to be!!

Where did I go?? …
