Hide and Seek

It’s always on my mind.

I’m always wishing for it.

It creeps into my slumber

And hides out in my daydreams.

I imagine how to hold it–

Even while I haven’t yet touched it.

I’ve wished upon a shooting star,

I’ve peered into crystal balls,

I’ve clasped my hands in prayer,

And still…

I’m sitting here,

Staring at a vacant room,

Making space for a missing soul,

Artificially filling an empty spot,

Watching it be pushed farther out of reach

With every season’s change

And loose end I seek.

It’s always on my mind.

It creeps into my slumber

And yet it still hides from me.
