What Would You See?

I wonder what your eyes would see,
Should you find your way to my place.
Would you look past my shy smile,
And notice the new lines on my face?

Could you still seek out my eyes,
Bravely meet their admiring glance,
As you once did so long ago.
Would my eyes convey the same stance?

Would you be afraid to peer within,
And know sleepless nights and unfilled days,
Or feel the contented glow of a traveler,
Who continued on though you turned away.

Would you step inside and touch my soul,
Take a little risk and connect with me once more?
Smile, dissolve our cares with your gentle touch,
And let the joy and love within us pour?

Just what would you see in me,
If you could find your way to me again.
The mark of sadness on my walls,
Or the sea of hope and joy waiting within.

You know Rich, This is probably the same question that all people ask themselves, "What do others see, when they look at me?"  This is especially true when it comes people with which we've had past relation- ships.  If we knew the answer to that question I wonder what we'd do with the information; being the humans that we are.  Interesting piece

She would see the man she loved from many years ago. The sea of hope and joy for love in its purest form looks past the lines

Richard ...I know this feeling...the lingering questions of what would be if.....

A classic write, open and vulnerable....once again you made me feel it!

sometimes it's hard to know whether or not we even want them to see what we've gone through. But I'd like to think that if she's looking, she could see the man inside that is strong and able to survive with happiness in spite of what the world may throw your way.
Great pouring out of your soul here...
