The Sweet Forget Me Nots


The forget me nots
The forget me nots

For when I wished to be happy, they put me down

For when I wanted to share, they started a countdown

For when I thought they were mine, they werent there

For some others do have em, for me tis always rare

 

For when I thought kindness is a gift we ought to share

For when I smiled, they really managed to create a scare

For when I felt they are close to me, they never were

For some others do have em, for me tis always rare

 

For friends they are , but tis only when they wish to

For talk they do, but only when they want to

For I have a reason to be , a reason I cannot share

For some others do have em, for me tis always rare

 

When they smile, we have to, when I do, they will not

For you would wonder what it is that is putting me in a spot

Tis the uncertainly, the doubts that cloud us that always do trot

Life is a gift accept it as it comes, for some others do have them like the sweet forget me not.
