Have you ever felt like this
You've given away your body parts,
A family member wants your soul
Your husband wants your heart.

A dear old friend stopped by today
And wants a small piece of your mind
Your cousin sent an email
She needs one day of your time.

Your daughter calls you on the phone
On your shoulder she does cry,
Mom, what's it all about
Is there a reason why?

I'm in bed at seven
And my husband says to me
Why are you so tired
How can this possibly be.

I answer him when he asks
With words that are untrue,
I'm sorry dear but I think I have
The starting of a flu.

I can never tell him
Today was hard you see,
I gave away my body parts
Now there are no parts left for me.
