Life, society /
How do I say goodbye to the eyes of beauty?
To touch a person's life
is not what captivates my heart-
its how the person has touched mine.
I remember the day I reached out
to a lost soul and I found my reason
She and He; made my ability to extend compassion
with such ease and I felt an enormous amount of love-
Love reaching far beyond what a person can comprehend.
I will be leaving a part of me with them...
to move on, meeting others with lost eyes
and beauty within them, to teach me
stories of why the world is a beautiful
place with them in it.
I'll never forget the faces
and the smiles they bring to my face.
I wont forget the day I realized
they were not lost, it was I
who was lost.
Walking into a Homeless shelter
has brought beauty to my life
and pain to my heart as I walk
I wrote this poem
to share at my going away party
to happen in Mid July, at the Mission
I work at in New York.
I am moving back to my home state of Kansas
end of July.
This is truly beautiful <3
