Through Your Eyes - Poem by Hannah Gilchrist

Bare & broken, I stand before you.
My crippled and tortured body falls away.
You behold me as a child.
I see myself through your eyes;
I am loveable, I am beautiful.
My soft blue skirt folds and flows as I dance.
With lost awareness, I am free,
and extend to the limit of myself.
I feel a fullness within, or even beyond.
You salve my aching soul.
I long to be in you, part of you,
But earth is calling me back.
I am grounded.
But I will walk lighter for a time.
