Hide And Seek - Poem by Khairul Ahsan
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.
