It’s all around me,

right here with me,

but it eludes me nevertheless

in the smile of a loved one

in comfortable silences

in those warm and sparse hugs

or a knowing look

it’s all around me,

right here with me

but it eludes me nevertheless

in genuine praises

in a warm touch

with flirtatious comments

in tears spilled for me

it’s all around me

right here with me

but it eludes me nevertheless

love eludes me all the time.
