Rag-doll

Rag-doll in the corner
Watching people pass by
Wondering if they hear her
Always wondering “Why?”

The little girl who used to hold her...
Forgot she was there

The woman who chose her...
Acts like she doesn’t care

Oh little lonely rag-doll in the corner
Watching everyone silently
Sheds a few tears
Whispering “Won’t someone notice me?”
