Just because you see me
doesn't mean I'm there
and just because I smile
doesn't mean I'm fair
I do this thing called acting
it tends to work so well
whether i'm around
family or friends
but i can't hide from you,
not until now.
ever since she came along
a lot more I've been able to hide
your focus is turned
just as it always turns out
No one was there for me
even when my Grandpa passed
"be strong" they all said
"for everyone else"
that's exactly what I did
I kept a straight face
only at night was when
I could cry alone
But even now
I don't want you
to give it all up
and leave your own life
I don't want you
to feel sorry for me
but I do want to say
Just one thing
Thank you.

I wrote this too a friend actually. and they were always there for me, but then their attention did turn and now it's like I'm not even there, but still I appreciate the time that they did pay attention.
