Caught in the whirlwind of emotions,
like sunrays in the mist
you struggled for clarity

Trapped in the shadows,
you couldn’t look into her
in her eyes, staring at yours
searching for something they could never find

Busy examining her body
you failed to probe her soul
oblivious to her yearning,
you quenched your thirst

As the moment faded
you wondered, if anything she feared
if she was unsure or scared
you questioned
a woman whose eyes, yes, looked away
for what she saw in yours

Lets share, if you are willing to
you voice your woes
seeking hugs comforting
reassuring you of good times yet to come
But happiness?
you cling to it, hiding the joy
like a child to its favorite toy
seeking permanence, you hope for eternity

trying to erase that despair,
with an anguish for the changing time
you create more around
busy measuring your own smile,
you miss the delight of seeing others
maybe you never cared for the faces around

I remember

Breaking into a song so swiftly
unsure of the lyrics, you would sing aloud
I still remember

Sometimes, with eyes closed,
your lips would move
creating a song so beautiful

I remember you, bursting into laughter so loud
at a place calm and poised,
you would talk with a sudden thud

Defying everything in every way
even yourself at times so many

I remember you, like a child,
eager to taste the world
you would run

run from everything
even from yourself at times so many

I like I saw that child in you
that I didn't see I in you
But a You!
