Dear ‘God’, please remember me when I reach heaven’s ingress.
Hold me close as can be, for I have such loneliness.
Dear ‘God’, why do they all leave?
Why always left here alone?
Daily soul to grieve and grieve,
‘Til my heart is dead as stone.
Dear ‘God’, I’ll pretend you’re here.
Standing next to me smiling.
Glancing at me so dear,
This dream keeps me trying.
Dear ‘God’, would you stay always,
With this ‘lone forsaken soul?
Upon which none do gaze,
Left by the world unwhole.
Dear ‘God’, maybe you care for me?
People pass me on their way,
But don’t care to know me,
A lonely castaway.
