Do You See Me

Do you see me like I see you?

Because I hope and pray you do.

I wish someone to smile at me like I do you.

Because I Love all the quirks that make up you.

I want to be seen like a flower in bloom.

I want to be seen in the eyes of truth.

did you know that’s how I look at you?

your eyes shine like the sun lit moon.

Yes, I know what’s behind the things you do.

But you don’t see me like I see you.

So, I will fade away soon.

It hurts to watch from a far off dune.

Or maybe there’s a reason why you don’t see me,

but I see you.

Hi, I am R.D. Jess. I am a christian writer and postpartum doula. My relationship with my God is not a religion but a state of who I am. I love being there for others and find that writing the hard truth is the best way to make people feel less alone.
