You See Me

I thought I was a shadow

But you spotted me sat there

Hiding in the corner

Didn’t think anyone noticed my natural self- sacrifice

You saw me though

The whole me

And said I was beautiful

Understood I always put myself last

If it meant I could help others

Others laugh off that I would be sad

When people who’d wronged me were unhappy

But you called it beautiful

Claimed it was magnificent

Bringing tears to my eyes

No one else had seen me

But you saw me

Saw all of me

And told me this was the end of it

That every day you would put me first in your heart

As I naturally did for you

Holding me carefully in your hands

Bringing tissues for my eyes

Asking what I needed

And giving it to me in every moment

Filling me completely with your love

Healing my broken pieces back together

With the glue of your love

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
