The Observer

To the observer,
In silence you watch
From a distance you explore
Intrigued by interactions
The interplay of lives

To the observer
The deciphering of actions
Of intents not spoken
Of desires not revealed
The mystery of the heart

To the observer
Imagination your friend
Decoding of spoken words
And of brushing of hands
Of winking of eyes

To the observer
The laughter that is heard
The tears cried in silence
The joy not seen
And the challenges hidden

To the observer
The lessons learnt from a distance
The joy shared in watching others
Life's training that many miss
You have encapsulated in the process of observing others
