life is full of new beginnings
when I sense your eyes on me
help me to see through your eyessightssoundssmells.I long for yourstraightnessstrengthfirmnessand the circle of your lovewhich will include thosethingspeopleeventsto which I am frequently oblivious.Make mesimplehonestpurethat I may be at restwith youthe worldand me.
