Echoes of playtime

Walking around an empty hospital

Hearing voices, standing still

It's a strange feeling

Knowing there's no one on these grounds


Empty beds are blocking

As painful feelings are unlocking

Buried away in their homes

Scarred, anxious and alone


Yet the voices are protruding

Rebounding and allusive

Screams of fun and play come across

From another world now at a loss


Two different worlds neighbouring one another

One full of joy while the other asunder

Lost in its bureaucratic tangle

A mess of names and numbers rangle

A grumpy giant consults away

Using his restraint to stay astray

All while the empty beds are blocking

While youthful pain is growing
