Hide and Seek

I looked for you in the wardrobe under the bed behind the curtains

I tried to read your expression gaze into the window of your soul

I worked hard at catching what you were saying reading between the lines

 

Figuring out what was left unsaid the silence that stood between us

But you hid always behind that iron mask you wore even to bed

So though you were here I never found you however hard I seek

 

I looked for you in the shower under the summer sun behind the trees

I tried to capture your soul essence what made you tick get up every day

I worked hard at peeping beyond the facade of charm all round good bloke

 

Figuring out why the barrage of criticism finger wagging put downs kept coming

But you remained stoic saintly silent resilient a martyr to the cause unwavering

So though you were here I never found you no matter where I seek

 

Can the real you stand up please

Where have you been hiding all these years

Cos I sure never found you

 

Like snow which melts away

Autumn leaves blown by the wind

The river flowing in to the sea

 

Like the days which will not return

Memories lodged in our mind’s eye

The wounded wings healed fly free

 

Can the real you stand up please

Where have you been all these years

Cos I sure never knew you

 

I looked for you in the wardrobe under the bed behind the curtains

I tried to read your expression gaze into the window of your soul

I worked hard at catching what you were saying reading between the lines

 

But I never found you

Though I loved you

With all my heart

 

Where have you been hiding

My Love
