Excuse me, yes, hello!!
I wonder if you could help me
I’m looking for Myself. Have you seen her?
She has a warm smile, small eyes and skin of maple.
She used to laugh at the little things
So strong, so rich and amiable.
I lost her about five years ago
When my parents divorced.
She hadn’t been herself, you see
And all the tears and sobs didn’t help really
I know she didn’t mean to run away;
Hide back into an unnatural state
I bet she misses me and wishes to come home
I’ve been looking for so long, since she fled;
Retreated into loneliness
I’ve looked behind every nook and cranny,
In every room, inside every shoe,
Even within the sleeves of my favorite shirt
But all I managed to find was the glimpse of a shadow
Belonging to Myself.
Five years is an awfully long time but
I think she’s still alive
Somewhere out there where there is no hurt
She’s lost many things, you see
(Her father, grandfather, uncle and his son)
I think that’s why she ran away
So she could no longer feel the pain
Of losing those who she cared for most.
So, please, if you happen to see Myself
Won’t you send her my way?
Tell her I’m incomplete without her,
That I will surely stray into the miasma of doubt
The reward: a hug, a kiss and a happy wish
for finding Myself will be yours.
Hefty sum of happiness if found.
