Subtle clause

Subtle clause short poem

whom I’ve never seen
but always felt
from so very near,
who are you?
the unseen-
the unknown-
in sync with my eyes
you appear
and disappear.

When I am in pain
you come again, and
gently stroke
my forehead
or fondle with hair,
that motherly touch
or lover’s care.

This bond is uncanny
for our eyes never meet,
unconditional love of yours
comes with a subtle clause.
