She died inside
She didn’t feel a lot
Just a little more
She wasn’t sure how many times one could feel like this before “this” just was
Continually showing up for promptly closing doors
Only a child, she thought there was so much more
When do others see in her eyes what she can see in theirs?
At what point do they know that this one needs a little extra care?
Timing is everything
Unfortunately for her she has never worn a watch
When you ask her what she wishes for in life
She always smiles and says not much
Isn’t that irony of it all?
Exactly what she wished for
Is exactly what she got
