It's your spotlight, not mine.
I'll stay here in the shadows, watching
Silently. Everything is yours. Everything
Is, was, and forever will be yours.
What is mine? Nothing is mine. I
Stand in the shadow of your spotlight,
A mere footnote in the book that is
Your life. I don't complain. I don't yell.
I cry myself to sleep at night, but no one
Hears. No one cares. This is your day.
These are all your days. None of them
Are mine. Who am I to wish for one of
My own? A day where I am noticed. A
Day where I stand in my own spotlight,
No longer ignored. People will cheer
For me, not for you. My name will be
In lights, not yours. One day, sister,
That's all I ask. One day to say
This is my spotlight, not yours.
