Like the earth around me,
Often seems hard,
Where is the rain?
Where is the fruit for which I hunger?
But when you squeeze my hand;
I am reminded that I walk this path
Not alone but with you.
I am enchanted!
The Light in your eyes
Illuminates my world anew.
I hear you . . . I see you . . .
in the flora and fauna . . .
in all that surrounds me.
How could I have failed to see?
These human eyes,
Why do they betray me?
As I gaze into yours,
I see myself
Changed by your love.
I am captivated by the opportunities
Suddenly my own,
By the beauty you’ve laid before me.
How could I so long have missed it?
