I set here on a sadden knoll.
My heart feels black as coal.
I am bound by life's lagoon.
I hope to be rescued soon.
While those around me are scattered,
They are saying things to me that shattered.
I skittered away like the crab.
My heart could not take the stab.
It's beyond me and I don't know why...
So many need to make me cry.
While I wile away my hours...
My tears come like spring showers.
Though I am saddened, I can forgive.
For I don't know how much longer I will live
I tried so hard to show I care.
But, it's saddness I feel in the air.
