Here I Am

— Lesa Medley

Here I am,
right here,
in front of you
I am not invisible
I have a heart, a soft heart
that beats and loves
breaks and weeps
Look into my eyes
and you will see
I have a soul, a tender soul
that cares deeply
perhaps too deeply
Yeah, I cry sometimes
I have feelings
sensitive feelings that get hurt
when I am ignored,
taken for granted
or taken advantage of
I have been a friend
to some that didn’t
deserve that friendship
to some who never were my friend
not really, not when it truly mattered
I have been misunderstood
underestimated, criticized
and unappreciated
Please, do not look past me,
or brush me aside
Please, do pay attention
look at me, listen to me
I have a voice
and I have something to say
something you just might need to hear
Here I am,
right here,
in front of you
I am not invisible…
and I am not going away.
