There are times when we seem too obvious
Feelings and desires seem out of place
Then there are the times we stay quiet
Almost feeling that we should hide our face.
Being outgoing and letting others know
We express words belying an internal need
Maybe it is not seen by the casual glance
Yet we hope it won’t come across as greed.
Some happen past and won’t even take note
They have some personal desire to pursue
Maybe one will notice a word or thought
They might pause a moment to stop and view.
Do we appreciate how others express a word
Will we give of our time to show we do care
Might it be that we experience that moment
Hearing someone say, is anyone out there.
