Who Are You?

Entry by: Boiarski

4th December 2014

The baby giggles unabashedly every time I peek
above the stone. She is so taken with this game
and the way my face appears, says “boo,”
and suddenly is gone.

Once she’s grown enough to play hide and seek
she is as thrilled as before, her delight the same
with finding or being found, that too,
joyous as we carry on.

Now, I have known those
who will never again be found,
I see these children’s games
were always giving us
these little lessons in loss.
