Alone (Forgotten cnt'd)

My eyelids flutter open
As my face is warmed by the sun
Yet the cool damp air keeps me still
My brown hair is matted down
I stretch out my arms
High above my head warming up the cold muscles
Slowly rotating my sore ankles
Squeezing my eyes shut and then reopening them to the world
The lake still and peaceful
Crystal reflecting in the sunshine
The fog risen from last evening
Yet still just lingering unseen between the trees
A sugary sweet pine scent fills my nose
And it all comes back
The phone call
Every word of heart aching news
"swerved, reck, dead..."
Dead, no mom or dad left
I'm here alone
No one to comfort me
New tears roll down my sticky cheeks
And I just lie there
Lie there and wait
For what I don't know
No one will find me, or knows where I am
No one to worry about me anymore
I just lay there in the misty morning
Because I'm probably less alone out here
Then back where no one needs me...
