Let Me Know

When you see me in rags
carrying my home with me
let me know I am someone.

When you hear my bitter voice
telling tales of infidelity
lend me your ears.

When you see anguish in my eyes
not any longer knowing how to cry
let me see your tears.

When you see my rough hands
and the scars of solitude
help me to touch.

When I stand in your way and grin
because I have forgotten how to smile
help me to remember.

When I was a child I had a future like yours
but now I have only this moment
and it is all that you have.

Let me know I am someone.
