When all is ok when not I pretend . I pretend to be happy but sometimes I'm not . I pretend to my children and hope never to offend . I pretend when I'm sad and hope I have a friend . I pretend there are no problems or have I forgot . I pretend things will get better . But they are not . I pretend it's ok to forget what's been said . I pretend all is ok but simply it's not . Time passes you by and you pretend every one cares . When all you ever want is a hug . So many excuses made so you have to pretend . You don't really need a hug at all . Am I just pretending or not .
