Little Traveller

Gemma Burnell

Excuse me little traveller. Can you wait with excitement?
I get scared on my own. Please don’t go, I’m frightened.
I just need you hold me. I don’t want to be lonely.
Pinky promise I’ll stay. Why don’t you get to know me?

Excuse me little traveller. Can you wait there with innocence?
I’ll run really fast. I can also be mischievous.
Let’s be companions. Like I am your shadow.
Please wait by the door. Please don’t leave. Don’t go!

Excuse me little traveller. Did you hear? I said wait!
You must do as I say. Oh don’t get in a state!
I’ll come with you to school. I’ll be there with your friends.
Now you’ve got me, you don’t need them!

Excuse me little traveller. We are close as we’ll ever be,
But we didn’t shake hands. And it’s Mr Anxiety.
