IT IS NOTHING



I am pouring my coffee,
I feel my face tingling.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
I see my coffee cup,
I must concentrate.
I donít seem to be able to pour this cup.
Of course I can.
Concentrate, concentrate.
Alright, look at the cup
Slowly, slowly,
Good girl you did it.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
I hear , but everyone is talking from a distance.
Listen better.
Concentrate concentrate.
Good girl you did it.
I hear you,
I just canít quite understand.
Say it again,
I will get it this time.
I am confused.
What was I saying?  What did you say?
Concentrate concentrate.
Oh no!
I feel like I am dropping in the well.
I donít want to go in the well.
The well is far away from you.
I must concentrate.
Everyone sounds so far away.
I am trying so hard to stay.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
Iím sorry, I canít hold on.
I must leave for a few minutes,
But Iíll come back, just hold on.
Donít be frightened, donít be sad.
I will be alright, it is nothing.
Iím sorry.
Please donít treat me differently.
I really am like you,
I just go in the well sometimes.
Iím alright I will concentrate.
Next time it will be different,
Next time I wonít have to leave.
I must concentrate.
It will be alright, it is nothing.
