did anyone ever distract you?
take you away from a painful thought
did anyone say something to make you smile
when the world was caving in?
was there a light on your screen
was there a message in your hand?
was anyone around for you at 5am
when you arrived alone?
was there anyone to be in the light with
to hold in the night, to make a lie alright
to dare risk all to change
and let you be a wife?
did anyone ever lift your chin
to see your smile and ask your thought?
and did anyone ever see
how precious you are?
