Shadow Of My Former Self

My life has changed so much y'know -- illness being one

So many years have passed, so many friends have gone

You think you have a special friend and to find that is no more

Like she invited you in for coffee then shows you out the door

 

Can't say I blame them anyhow, who wants a boring mate

Whose only friends are goats and geese contemplating fate

So now I'm here on my lonesome, not even a girlie chat

Even the postman shuns me and I don't blame him for that

There's been so many ups and downs, more downs to be exact

And I carry on as normal with my nothing's the matter act

 

You look so well they always say but is it compliment or quip?

I smile and say thank you whilst biting my bottom lip

I do the most outrageous things like trying to prove a point

Then spend the rest of tomorrow rubbing every joint

And I get so tired of told-you-so it's really getting thin

Just like my tired body that I hardly now fit in

It's fair to say I was rounded, I don't mind if you called me fat

For at least those days were healthy and you cannot deny me that!

 

A shadow of my former self that's how I am today

If I don't rest a little while I just might waste away

I can fit in most designer wear now isn't that a joy?

The figure I always wanted came too late for me to enjoy

So I'm going through life as a statistic with numbers oh so rare

I feel like one in a million, please don't mock me or stare

I may be a bit dilapidated, an old crock and not at all funny

But I'm not done with you yet -- I'd give you a run for your money!

 

Don't write me off, don't think I'm through

I still have loads of things to do

And whilst I run on liquid feed

You'd best watch out world, take heed

That little tornado up the street?

Me and my rucksack, you just might meet!
