from the outside

I’m at the gate
Waiting, bright is the house

On the boundary I lean
Seeing the happy, smiling people at home

Does anyone notice, I’m calling
Was I ever there

Here I am in the dark, silent

I’m cold, my legs getting tired

How much longer can I stand
Alone looking in

Does anybody see me
What’s wrong with me

I would like to say hello
My voice is gone

It’s been so long
They’ve moved on
