I wish I was a glow worm, a glow worm's never glum.'Cos how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum!

I know she’s hiding how she feels,
Behind that all too happy mask,
I know I cannot change that,
She has to change herself.

“Look!” I want to say
“Look at how she really is”,
A cloud with no silver lining,
A cloud with no happiness to receive.

I don’t know how to help her,
If only she knew this:
If I could shield her from the harm around me,
I wouldn’t stop to think twice.

Some call me stupid,
Others just think I’m mad,
For how could a best friend,
Become so emotionally attached?

To them I answer “I don’t know”,
And I pity them as they walk.
For they’ll never know the happiness that fulfils you
When she smiles behind the mask.

Show who you are, not what you want people to see you to be. Those who judge, you should not listen to and those who accept, you stay with forever.
