Alison Smith (22nd February 1957 / Orange, New South Wales, Australia)
Alone In A Crowd
She wanders through the crowd
It is as though she wasn't even there
No one acknowledges her presence
She is but a breath of air.
Have you ever felt alone in a crowd?
Wished you could be part of the scene
Felt as if everyone looks passed you
Wondered what it would be like to be heard.
She opens her mouth but no sound is heard
She walks but leaves no footprint in the sand
She feels no warmth within her heart
She hears no one call her name.
Next time you walk the busy street
Look for the wisp for it may be her
As you admire a beautiful sunset
Listen for the rustle of her words.
There is nothing more painful
As being alone in a crowd
Nothing so crushing
As having no voice.
See her, hear her, feel her love
She has so much she wants to give......
