AN OLD ABANDONED TOY


I'm just an old abandoned toy,
That you left alone and blue.
Forgotten in your toy box,
While you looked for something new.

I can't forget when we first met,
Like kids so full of joy.
But when the novelty wore off,
I became an extra toy.

You left me in your toy box,
Along with others there.
You closed the lid, where we were hid,
Then looked for better fare.

There was no challenge any more,
The game no longer new.
I lay forgotten in your box,
Just tossed aside by you.

While you were having fun with me,
I wish I could have known.
I was just a toy in your life,
And old toys get left alone.

The paint and glitter all wore off,
You said I was no fun.
You left me in your toy box,
This toy wouldn't run.

Then, you threw away the key,
Along with it, my heart.
You didn't want to play with me,
You broke me all apart.

I'm just an old abandoned toy,
That you left alone and blue.
Forgotten in your toy box,
While you looked for something new.
