Who Do You See?

I am talking to you.
Yes you over there
Looking at me with a glare
Watching me, your eyes on my every move
So close you seem, yet so far you feel
Trying to figure me out
Did I meet your expectations?

You mind working so hard I can feel it, your brain…
Analyzing, thinking, “who are you, what are you?”
Sad, happy, maybe both
I am complex I know
I can’t figure me out too
Perhaps an illusion you think
Maybe not perfection but, I am real
So you stare,
Your mind blank now, I know
I have been there

I walk away and so do you
Coming back, I find you there
Were you waiting for me?
But I saw you leave….
A reckoning, we both smile
It’s not all that bad
We have been here before
So glad we made it through, with a touch from He above
We will survive the next day too
For today, all is well
Heaven in control
