This Is Me

This is me
Standing silent in the dark
Wondering if you’ll see
Wondering if in a moment
You may turn and speak with me
Wondering if you know I’m here
Or if you even care
Wondering if you’ll speak soft
Brush my hair
Have you any time and love to spare?

This is me
Just a lonely little girl
In a world of men
Wondering if I’ll count
If not now, ever and when?
Waiting for my turn to turn
See what is waiting there
Wondering should I use my voice
Or would I even dare
Do you have moment left to spare?

This is me
Though it’s many years ago
And time has dimmed the pain
And time has washed the fabric
Bleached it out again, again
Wondering if you remember
That I was standing there
Waiting for just a moment
And just a little, very little
Time and love to spare
