    Poem Commentary

    Doesn't this remnd you of the days when someone cared

    Peek a Boo

    Peek a boo I see you
    Looking back at me
    In my baby dreams
    In my childhood youth
    You played peek a boo
    With me

    Your first peek was my face
    Staring back at you
    We'd played around  the corners
    Through my life

    My first trike ride was quite trip
    I saw you peeking 
    Through the window
    There you were waving back at me

    My first dance
    My first date you chaperoned
    Playing a game of a different sort
    Your own peek a boo

    Then on my own I ventured off 
    College bound
    I had a place of my own
    I thought I saw you drive by
    Were you playing peek a boo

    You were always there just for me
    Playing your little game
    To see if I was okay

    Taking care of you
    Now I finely see just why
    You played that game
    As you lie old in your bed
    I cross your room to see
    I find myself playing
    Peek a boo
    To see if your okay

    This poem is so sentimentally poignant! Peek-a-boo is a game in which one hides one's body, and repeatedly, then suddenly pops into sight. Betty has captured the mood very well. in relating some one ( a parent?) who watched over the stages and developmental activities of her life. In Jamaiaca we say, "Whatever goes around , vomes around,:" It is now the poet' time to watch over those who used to watch over her. For perfect and pleasing poetic skill, my rating is 10+

    Okay, that's not really a tear in my eye right now.... I'm just sadly smiling in appreciation for your sentiment - I pay you high compliments for words so beautifully hidden then revealed in an artful game of life long peek a boo's! 10 from me for letting the reader take a peek
