I watch as you pass by my room
Not listening as I call out to you
I long for just a simple hello
My visitors are too few.
I'm up in years and my youth is gone
I have no children of my own
There's no one to come and visit me
There's no one I can telephone.
Oh how I would enjoy a visit
Or someone to notice me
I still have feelings and I'm still alive
Just look at me, can't you see?
I crave some company and tender words
I need to know there's someone who cares
Would you mind spending some time with me
Would you have the courage - would you dare?
Dare to make an old woman happy
Dare to brighten my day
Am I asking too much of a stranger
Are you willing to go out of your way?
Please don't walk on by my room
Come in and sit awhile
I promise I won't keep you long
The stories I can tell will make you smile!
