 Elsie`s Poetry



Wake up it`s time to smell the coffee
I see what`s going on around me,
I can blank it out for just so long
But I know things are going wrong.

It pains me to have to say this though
But I know my heart is in for a blow,
I can pretend everything is just fine
But I know I`m at the end of the line.

I`ll shake it off and brush it aside
And all my hurt I`ll try to hide,
With chin held high I`ll smile at you
I`ll not let you see my heart is blue.

Time is running out fast for me
Do I no longer appeal to thee?
I loved you with all of my heart
I know I once was your sweetheart.

I`ll go now and I`ll not look back
I must get my life back on track
There`s a future out there for me
I`ll go it alone if must be.
