The Things I See
I wish you knew the things I see when I look at you.
I see strength and power and beauty.
I see a person – not a girl anymore but still, not yet a woman.
I see your infinite potential; the power in you to become everything you want to be.
I see a soldier; one of of God’s own warriors, getting through each day wonderfully.
I see past pain, and hurt and regrets; and in that I see the promise of a better tomorrow.
I see the light that shines within you, although maybe you still haven’t discovered that light for yourself. But it is there and it shines so brightly – it’s beautiful.
I see hope and love and a yearning for something more; something so much more than this.
I see someone who can do this thing called life; and with a little belief, you can do this thing called life and do it your way.
I see in you the power to take this world by storm; but I also want you to remember to be in it but not of it. Let go and let the journey be amazing.
I see so much in you and I am so proud of you.
Do you really not see the things I see when I look at you?
I see nothing, everything and so much more…
One day, you’ll see; and one day you will believe the things I see when I look at you.
