Somewhere Elsie

Her parents didn’t expect this to happen
When they were waiting for a healthy child
And the doctors did not know the cause
But they would love her always and forever

Of course they worried about later
When they would not be there anymore
Would there be someone to love her then
Where she is happy all the time

But her mind is far away in Somewhere Elsie
We can only see her like the things she’s watching
In another place that’s unknown in our world
Where she is happy all the time

Somewhere Elsie, where the sun is warm
You can see it shining in her smile

Somewhere, Elsie

Actually the title wasn’t made up by myself but quoted from once a colleague in a different place and time. Elsie was always happy, smiling and enjoying the things we could not see. As if her mind was in a totally different place filled with laughter. As my colleague would say, she’s Somewhere Elsie.
