Where Once It Was Peek A Boo - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Do you hear them?
Playing, hide and seek
Where once it was peek a boo
But soon it’ll be, see you soon…

Do you remember?
Hiding behind the sofa…
Laughing; with that imaginary, appendix-scare.
Saying, everything’s going to be alright.

Do you see them?
“Dreaming, life will never move on…
O who’ll peek first, and who’ll be lost…
When, it’s time to come a seeking”.

Do you remember?
Those long hurt looks when,
The pretending had to end.
And the tooth fairy had to take a long stroll…
Because there’s no more money gets rolled
Beneath a pillow!

Do you hear them?
Do you hear them now?
Do you see them now?
Shouting… that the winters are cold:
And it’s hard to stand - alone!

Do you hear them?
Playing, hide and seek
Where once it was peek a boo
But soon it’ll be, see you soon…

Do you remember?
Do you hear them?
Do you remember?
Do you hear them?
In a Christmas land of hope!
When all gods’ hopes were rapt and sent…
And captured in Polaroid memories
Do you hear them?
Do you he see them?
a long time ago…
