limelight. (originally written on 4/8/09)

you're in the

limelight.

the light's bright.

it's your night.


we pack our bags

to follow you.

up and down,

to win the crown.


we spend our fun,

when we were young,

to stand back and watch....

you....


the curtain's pulled,

and there you are.

every last hair in place,

your make up'd face....


we cheered aloud,

from in the crowd.

we were nothing.

we meant nothing.


we stood back

to watch you bask

in all your glory.

your life was our story.


round 2.

we're older.

my shoulder's MY shoulder.


forgive me for not sharing,

i'm not that uncaring.


you're in the limelight.

the light's bright.

it's your night.


again....
