Holidays and thank yous

Tomorrow is Family Day holiday in Ontario – nothing open
May be a good day to practice poetry and tackle techniques
I would like to say thank you to all my followers and those who like my poems etc your support goes straight to heart

I am still here, can’t you see

I am still here, can’t you see

I may not be able to speak, but I understand the words you say

Please stop looking so pitifully at me

I am still here, can’t you see

I am trapped in a decrepit body, wish I could be free

“Please don’t let them forget about me!”, I silently pray

I am still here can’t you see

I may not be able to speak, but I understand the words you say

My words are frozen upon my tongue, how can this be

I used to speak so eloquently

I am still here, can’t you see

My limbs won’t move, they have failed me

I used to dance so beautifully
