I am not that hand you seeWorking the day longNot the voice you knowUnheard yet uncomplainingNot the office you take meConsidering compromisingNot the food served at your tableAt the cost of burnsNot the lullaby at theUnconscious tiring nightsNot the warmth you feelUnder your blanketNot that custom you knowTo satisfy your tastesNot that laugh when you thinkI am enjoying your guestsYour family, your mateI am nowhere thereWhere I can’t be knownVisible, felt, cared and celebratedTomorrowIf you can’t find me thereIt’s for you to seek!
