Why did you leave me all alone?
So young in years, not even grown
Is there no one who cares in my family?
Unloved and neglected is difficult you see
Face at the window, someone may come
Time passes by, my heart does succumb
Mother and child holding hands on to school
As I watch with some sadness, life seems so cruel
Maybe it’s me, have I been bad in the past?
Children happily playing, my life does contrast
I can’t understand this emptiness that I feel
The tears and the sadness I try to conceal
There must be something wrong with me, I guess
So the sadness and sorrow I’ll just have to suppress
How I long for a cuddle, a tender embrace
The sort of compassion a dream can’t replace
As I look to the dark and grey angry sky
Please answer my question, just tell me why?
