Where did you go?


Are you under the bed,

or in the sky

Maybe you're in the shadows

Where did you go?

Taking one step at a time,

carefully skipping the lines

The fun of making everything rhyme,

Where did you go?

The little girl in me,

Who sometimes weeps

while her father soundly sleeps.

Where did she go?

Now I keep a count of my drinks

And I lose track of time;

I tell everyone I’m fine,

Even though I wake up crying.

Maybe my childhood just disappeared In skipped conversations and my classic response of “Oh, I’m fine”

Sadly I am no stranger to loss

For this world has let me down too many times.
