Your eyes used to shine bright
But where is the shine now?
And you used to smile with such delight
But it left you somehow.
I wonder why you lost your spark,
I hope you find it again.
I pray you get out of the dark
Come back, let’s begin.
I smile and sometimes laugh
But deep down I’m sad.
They see a bright and happy gal
But they don’t know I’m sad.
Not out loud, just secretly kept,
I am sad.
I play pretend and deny it to myself
But the truth is, I’m sad.
– Maria Michaela –
And they called her the lonely one
Because she had no one
Because they all believed that everyone
Has to have a someone.
But she survived on her own
Because she was anything but lonely
