- What Matters
You frown, you frown, Tigerlily;
Your laugh, your joy is gone.
You stand apart and distant,
And sing a lonely sung song.
Your voice, your voice, Tigerlily,
It is a plate of steel.
You state the facts, you use short words,
Your emotional mind stays sealed.
Your smile, your laugh, Tigerlily;
That which I loved of you most,
Has faded away, has turned to gray,
To normal, to average, stale toast.
I wish, I pray, Tigerlily;
That your essence will return.
Whatever has caused this change to commence
Will be buried and bottled and burned.
You're lost, come back, Tigerlily;
Where has my best friend gone?
Have we taken no heed to what you would need
By using you just as a pawn?
Run, escape, Tigerlily;
Go where your spirit leads you.
I love you too much to let your charisma just die.
Let the course of rebuilding ensue.
