If you see me all alone
and I’m truly all alone,
and if you just pass by
instead of saying hi,
remember how extremely hard
it is to hug yourself.
When you see me sit alone
at an empty lunchroom table,
and when you move on
to sit with friends,
remember: it’s extremely hard
to hug yourself.
When I’m simply alone
all by myself,
I can only hope
that you know
how extremely hard
it is to hug yourself.
Because when I see you
all alone and abandoned
I’m sure I’d come say hi,
‘cause I sure know how extremely hard
it is to hug yourself.

This is amazing. Short and powerful. I love it! :) And of course my favorite line is...

"I'm sure I'd come say hi,

'cause I sure know how extremely hard

it is to hug yourself."
