    Have You Seen Me?

    Have you seen me today?
    I don’t know where I’ve gone.
    Perhaps I’ve wandered off somewhere,
    Or maybe someone took me.
    But who would want
    Such a battered old thing as me?

    Have you seen me today?
    I’ve looked everywhere.
    I wasn’t in any of the usual places.
    I wasn’t with friends or family,
    I wasn’t at work or school either.
    I even looked the mirror
    But all that was there
    Was an empty space.
    Where I once was.

    Have you seen me today?
    I can’t remember exactly when
    I misplaced me.
    Perhaps it was at the river,
    Or maybe I lent myself
    To someone who lost me.
    Or did it happen bit by bit,
    Like a puzzle?
    A piece here or there,
    But never the whole picture at once?

    Have you seen me today?
    I know I’m hard to find.
    Small things are so easy
    To mislay, aren’t they?
    But if I turn up, won’t you call?
    Small things often go unmissed
    Until they are missing.
