Lost (Monday Poem)

by Michael Rosen

One moment they were there and we were having fun.
Now they've disappeared, every single one.
I don't know where to go and I'm feeling rather scared.
I don't know where they are, it's not as if they cared.
I'm lost, I'm lost, I'm halfway up the stairs.
They've only go and left me, and nobody cares.
Help me, help me, someone. Can't you hear me shout?
Isn't anybody here who can come and help me out?
I'm alone and lonely and it's starting to get dark.
Where is everyone? Did they go to the park?
Are they in or out? Did they go up to town?
Do you think I should go upstairs? Or down?
I don't know, I don't know, anything at all.
I'm going to sit still now and just look at the wall.
