Up and Down

This one is the equivalent of babble – written very quickly whilst very tired.

When she felt down
She needed a happy face
To put her in a better place
But his empathic soul
Fell down with hers
They both ended up
In a place they didn’t want to be

When he felt down
He wanted to see a smile
A cheerful grin to beguile
But her melancholy gaze
Fell blankly upon him
They both ended up
In a place they shouldn’t have been

When she felt down
She needed a pick-me-up
An overflowing cup
Of saccharin sweet nectar
Poured all over her
But she ended up
Bringing him down with her

When they feel down
They need to get a grip
Force the coin to flip
Paint themselves a happy hue
Be the MEs they need to be
To lift themselves up
Find their own space and place
