When I Look

Written for a close friend of mine that I care about.

When I Look

When I look into your eyes,

I see the warmth deep within,

The kindness and sweetness,

The passion and hope,

That drew me in,

The pain and sorrow of the past,

That I reach out and want to heal,

The desire and beauty,

That wants to be released,

When I look into your heart,

I feel how much you desire,

But how hard it is to let love in,

The depth of the warmth,

That you show to me,

Even as we have been friends,

You were there through a darkness you hadn’t known,

And I have been there through your trials,

And I will always be there for you my darling,

When I look into your soul,

I see the depth of your heart,

The depth of your being,

The depth of you,

As you stare into my eyes,

When I look into your eyes,

I feel safe and secure,

I feel myself like I haven’t felt so long,

I feel I can be just who I am with you,

And you hold me so strong and sweet,

So when you ask me what I see about you,

Know that these words are true,

When I look at you,

When I look in your depths,

I see the wonderful person I have come to know,

Someone who brings a smile,

Someone who keeps me laughing,

Someone who is always there for me,

Through it all.


Depth, Drew, Heal, Kindness, Warmth
