It’s like a game of hide and seek
trying to find the words
reaching out for their magic
their power to wipe the slate
if only the right ones could be written…

It’s like waiting for sleep
with your head on the pillow
and a mind awake with thought
knowing rest would come
if only calmness could be found…

We spend our days and our years
finding the words to speak, to write
reaching always for the bridge
that will lead to understanding
if only we could be heard… ~ Caroline A. Slee
