I'm just a ghost

I'm just a ghost

A Poem by Richard Dolevin

Drifting in and out of the lives of others
Like a lone feather floating in the breeze,
Untouched and unnoticed, never to be seen
Up unto the point I quietly take my leave.

I dance to an endless tune in a masquerade
Skillfully hiding being my smiling mask.
And I'll end up on the far side of the room
For center stage is too difficult a task,

But don't you know I love charity balls!
I will donate all that I have to offer
And smile as I watch their faces brighten
From the side, for I'm not much of a talker.

I'll fancy few words at the dinner toast,
Though my words seem to fall on deaf ears.
I'll sit quietly then, and just watch
Just like I have for all of these years.

Perhaps it is my nature to be a ghost
That way there's nothing to ever lose,
For I never fight to keep anyone close
Or ever make them have to choose.

I do not know what else there is to say
It's not like it'll be remembered anyway.
