SIGHT FROM THE HEART

Some of us have sight, but still can’t perceive,
The beauty around us, that we ought to receive,
We take for granted, who has always been there,
Stop! Take time out to appreciate others, not stop to just stare.

Others see more than what meets the eye,
They notice the details, they don’t just pass by,
They find the magic in the simplest things,
They also appreciate to see joy that nature brings.

What of, those who can’t see with their eyes,
The ones who must rely on their heart, their spirit, their ties.
To the world around them, to sense its true form,
Their other senses become alerted, heightened and warm.

For they know the heart cannot be seen,
They love, the connection, that flows in between,
The physical world and the heart’s own internal beat,
Plays a rare, rhythmic, precious, melodic song that’s truly sweet.

So therefore, we must cherish our sight and our heart,
For they work together to be fair, to create a moving work of art,
A masterpiece that’s unique to each and every one,
The heart is created for a life that is yet to be spun.

We must learn to trust the eyes of our heart,
To see beyond the surface, to go beyond that part,
To understand the message that’s hidden inside,
We must let the truth become our intuition guide.

For when we can see with our heart, not only with our eyes,
We can open up to a world that’s full of a happy surprise,
We can find new meaning for the mundane to become anew,
We can discover the joy in everything else we can do.

So let us celebrate the gift of life and sight,
Both the physical, the spiritual, with all our might,
Let us use our heart to spread truth, love and light,
To guide us through the darkness of these chaotic nights.
