The Me I see in You


As I enter the room I notice you there

Waiting to be seen, waiting to share

I see reflections of sadness in your eye

With shyness, you glance up at the sky


Self-conscious of how you may appear

With nervousness you share that I may hear

Of weights, of hurts, of pain and grief

Next acknowledging the ways you gain relief


Your inner dialogue re-plays its tape

An imagined conversation takes a shape

Will you admire my strength and my courage?

Or a need for confidence, you want to encourage?


Do you like the clothes I wear?

What of my face and my hair?

Do you understand and accept my choice?

That I’m okay, let me hear your voice.


In addition, I see sparks coming from within

From where does it come?  Where does it begin?

Uncovering a Shining Soul for all to see

A Divine expression that just wants to be


Accepted and respected, close and afar

With non-judgement, seen as you truly are

All this and more, is the me I see in you

Looking back at me, you see you too
