Through My Eyes


I met you as a stranger
With disbelief in your existence
But they say you shall be found in the strangest of places,
It is so little that words describe
Too much but not enough
Enough yet, to see you through my eyes.
I knew you long before
You touched the icy core
Not for who you are
But for what you seemed to me
And still,
Too good for my reality
It is in your unfailing patience,
That I measured hope
And your caring presence
Felt and belittled
But not really so,
Remember this, that not a detail
Skips the cautious eye
And not a sound is missed
By the longing ear
The pain you hide, may well be hidden,
But inflicts wounds
Deeper than you'd wish
For through my eyes
The dream I see,
Of our tiny world, just you and me
Calls for hope and patience and care.
The horror of losing that which gave me purpose,
Exposes me to what I fear
Because I'd be lost without that moment
When my eyes held yours
And I saw you for who you are
I saw you, through my eyes.
