Hide and Seek

Where has she been all this time...
The "Me" I never sought to find?
Epiphany when least expected:
All these years was quietly neglected
Fashioned into sweet denial
Kept in check all the while
But she was there, a waif in the wings...
Waiting for me to look beyond all of the things
That I have collected and put on a shelf
But really had nothing to do with myself
Why did it take a lifetime to see
The perfect Me I always wanted to be?

...for my Mom
