I see you

I see you

Not as others see you

But you

Totally you

You as you really are


I see you

Not as an assortment of personality, characteristics and traits

But you as the expression of the divine

Evidence of the true idea, shining into my life


I see you

Not the fears, the doubts, the worries, the ‘what ifs’,

But you as the purity of all that is possible within me too


I see you

When I look you in the eye

And see those ‘images of winter’*

The fear that has closed your heart for far too long


I see you

The promise of spring and summer still to come

When the ice begins to melt

And you break through to the surface

To come up for air


I see you

Dancing over the ice caps that kept you hostage for so long

Now, swimming, soaring, flying through the water

The coldness of yesterday dissolving into the deep


I see you


As you have always been

I see you
