Alone among the Dandelions and Daisies I would play

Friends from inside my head were with  whom I shared my day.

They would never let me down, never a cruel word said

Real friends did not exist yet so I took refuse in my head.


Brothers and sisters I had but they were too old for me

So much younger than them, I was like an only child  you see.

Jingle Bells and Ossie too finding things for me to to do

Bill Bailey  always being naughty not forgetting Curly Sue.


Always the odd one out at school never quite fitting in

I took to hiding in my imagination saving my paper thin skin.

Teachers all thought  me the fool never paying attention

But I was learning from my friends thing too wonderful to mention.



When everyone only saw  school books, lessons, rain or cloudy skies

I saw rainbows, fairies  castles and magic coloured  butterflies .

Whenever lessons got too dull I could always slip away

However cruel the other children could be in my mind I could always play.


Now don’t feel sorry , don’t feel sad for this child who friends never had

For what I learned in those lonely years I will always be glad.

The beauty and wonder I could find whilst hiding deep within my mind

Showed more beauty and knowledge than in the real world I would ever find.
