Before the show I felt a tug.
My silent shadow smiled at me.
Today has been long and slow.
I hope for some rest soon.
I quietly step into the dark tent.
I remember that I am alone now.
My past life with you is fading.
The lights went up at once.
I step into the ring for my act.
There are cheers from all sides.
Their love warms my heart again.
