In secret

You knew me in the womb, fashioned and made me
The workings of the heart, our growing all takes root
In the depths within, in secret we know you, we pray
For the strength to endure, for safety and sometimes
We only see the outward signs unanswered in violence
Which shuts out the depths of love, yet it is all a secret
We cannot read another's heart, the closest we come is
In the uniting of two becoming one, yet we don't still
Understand the scope of the inner workings or how
Deeply we are rooted together, instead we concentrate
On outward appearances which do not fully reveal
The inward us, only you can know and this is why so
Many times we are cautioned not to judge because
We can never know the depths of you in another
