Hands on my head Eyes so red Am watching the folks, The ladies and the blokes, Who scurry past by, Like a wandering fly ! Some say hi and some say bye, Some are indifferent, Some take no notice..… Which is all very fine, On any other day But not today! Today is a day Am feeling so low, I’ve lost something precious Don’t my eyes tell so? All I wish Is for a hug to heal, A shoulder to lean, A hand to hold… But My oh My ! This seems to be a world of Hi Bye! With thoughts retrospective It gives me a perspective, To value those, Who have come along And held me strong, In times of need, Without an ask Without a fuss! So I wish to thank you My dear friends Who stick around and stand by me For you are the most, precious indeed!
