Little clown,
You seemed so happy and carefree.
I thought nothing could keep you down,
But there was more to you than we could see.

You hid your sorrow behind a mask,
And bottled your fear up deep down inside.
You needed help, you tried to ask.
But fear made you run away and hide.

Little clown, you never showed your true colors.
Little clown, you were so shy.
You hid your feelings from others.
Little clown, you didn't know your heart was dying.
