Hide And Seek

In our childhood days, remember, we used
To play Hide And Seek? You hid yourself
Behind a bush, or in a ditch or on the branch
Of a tree, but I could always find you out.

Later when we grew up, you hid yourself
Quietly in my heart. When I cast my eyes
All around, you were nowhere to be found.
For my sight didn't reach inside my heart.

But just like a genie you used to pop up,
Whenever I closed my eyes, and be right
In front of me, asking why I couldn't see
The love you always so fondly held for me.

    I remember well the hide and seek, in my time there was no other toy for me, that is why today everything is a toy, whatever comes to me. All the hobbies, all the volunteer work, all that computer findings, all are toys.
    Then I see you feel not right not to see clearly. I say, when we meet someone we have to learn from each other. When one or both do not learn anymore, that is the time to separate. This is life. Always a new and a new lesson comes to us, and we live until we can go forward and learn. Wishing you a long and healthy life. (Report) Reply

    Having someone in your heart is always nice, but if that is the only place you see them now, it is sad, it sounds like you've lost a very dear friend (Report) Reply
