[Poetry] You.

I look into your eyes
What do I see?
Acceptance, of who I am,
Knowing what I am,
Yet giving, accepting.
Loving.

I look into your heart.
What do I feel?
Joy, that I love you.
Completeness, completion.
Rounding out our persons.
Cuddling.

I look at your smile.
What do I hear?
Love, enveloping me.
Involuntary, special.
A smile reserved for me.
Beaming.

I look at your hands.
What do I taste?
The work of your hands,
The effort and sweetness,
The work that you do in love.
Warming.

I look at you.
What do I know?
That you support and strengthen,
Encourage, just being there.
Wrapping your arms around me.
Protecting.

I look at myself.
What do I see, feel, hear?
Brokenness, incompleteness.
An arm without fingers
A heart that doesn’t pump.
Limping.

Looking at us,
What do I feel?
Hope, joy, perfection.
Imperfect, but still complete.
Everything will be ok.
Living.
