A REFUGEE IN YOUR WORLD !
A refugee I am in your world dense
I have always cherished this within
Heart gets trapped by none but you
Unable I’m to get you and your realm
Feeling myself lost ere I step in there
What do you achieve by elbowing me
Now me just a voice, a part of noise
Amidst my people , yet lonely I feel
The world often keeps ignoring me
And I can’t but cry in utter silence .

She is concerned for his feelings and responds…
STEPPING BACK INTO OUR WORLD!
I never stopped to think how you were feeling
You never say a word when something bothers you
I must admit, things have changed so much
Our lives have gotten so busy that silence never comes
We were so comfortable when it was just you and I
I never want you to feel foreign in our world
Fore what hurts you, will always hurt me too
Your people are my people, and for you to feel
as if the whole world has turned on you stabs
me like a knife piercing the very strings of my heart
I am lonely in the life that we have made for ourselves
Let us make time for each other again like we used to
Because time can run out without giving notice
And what is life if I can no longer share it with you? ©
