by Shel Silverstein

Nobody loves me,
Nobody cares, Nobody picks me peaches and pears.

Nobody offers me candy and Cokes, Nobody listens and laughs at my jokes.

Nobody helps when I get in a fight, Nobody does all my homework at night.

Nobody misses me,
Nobody cries, Nobody thinks I'm a wonderful guy.

So if you ask me who's my best friend, in a whiz, I'll stand up and tell you Nobody is.

But yesterday night I got quite a scare, I woke up and Nobody just wasn't there.

I called out and reached out for Nobody's hand, In the darkness where Nobody usually stands.

Then I poked through the house, in each cranny and nook, But I found somebody each place that I looked.

I searched till I'm tired, and now with the dawn,
There's no doubt about it- Nobody's gone.
