If You Should Want To Find Me - Poem by Ghada Shahbender

If You Should Want to Find Me
And I don’t know that you ever will
You won’t find me amongst the alley cats
For you have long de-clawed me
And taken out my fangs
You won’t find me in your shadow
For you have trodden all over me
Unmoved by my heartfelt pangs
You will find me in a prison cell
That you of all people
Should know too well
Or under a palm tree
In a distant oasis
Of solitude and reverie
Or on a deserted beach
Leaning on one hand
And building castles in the sand
There dearest is
Where you will find me
And I’ll be waiting patiently
For I am unable to give up on us
And will cherish you indefinitely

    Absolutely beautiful Ghada!
    If he finds you, I hope for both of you it'll be on a deserted beach in a distant oasis and not in a prison cell, love must be free like a bird, as you should too.
