This is the first poem I ever wrote which I removed from here due to Google search picking up my daughter's name. Grace is her middle name.
Look into my eyes
Tell me what you see.
When I look at you I see many things.
Sometimes I see pity, sorrow
or indifference in your eyes.
Many times you glance and quickly look away
and our eyes never meet.
Other times you stare but I don't see compassion
which I fail to understand.
Very rarely I see special eyes.
Eyes that connect with mine and with my inner being
eyes that understand me, that laugh with me
or well up with tears when I smile.
Look into my eyes and open your mind
and you will see the eyes of a little girl.
Sometimes wide with curiosity and wonderment
at the world of which I am part of.
Other times filled with pain, bewilderment
or the frustration which comes from being trapped
in a body that does not function as required.
But if you take the time and look at me,
you will see that my soul is alive and my heart is pure.
I have desires and I am capable of many things.
You will share in my anticipation, curiosity and joy.
but most of all you will experience my love.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
