 Elsie`s Poetry


This poem was not written by me
but by someone very close to my heart
and I think it deserves to be published.


Every day I see your face
Same old time and same old place
We never smile or utter a word
But all the time your voice is heard.

No one knows you better than me
Sometimes when I look it`s not you that I see
I see emptiness within in your eyes
Visible to me, but to everyone else it`s disguised.

I often wonder what happened to you
If the answers are there then give me a clue
I know there are things locked up in your head
But whenever I've seen you you've never said.

Void of animation we stare at each other
Side by side people would think we are brothers
I'm on the outside looking at you
Is it the other way round, who knows do you?

No matter where I go you're never too far
You're in every house and every car
I wonder which you I'll see next time we meet
When I look in the mirror after brushing my teeth.
