I saw you today.
Across the room.
I saw you with your head down, working on your puzzle.
I saw you with your head back, your lips moving. In prayer? In plea? In a curse?
I saw you with your head bowed down, hands supporting your emotionally weary head. While your heart was supported by invisible strength from people every where.
I saw you with your head thrown back in laughter. Strengthening your spirit. Or just getting through the moment.
I saw you with your head tilted in, listening to hear what was being explained. Trying to process it all.
I saw you helping someone else with something they were struggling with. It was something simple. But I saw your gentle demeanor and sweet touch.
I saw you sit away from everyone else. Lost in thought. Or very purposefully thinking. With your elbow on the table, your chin in your hand. Staring.
I saw you lean on a shoulder. Exhausted. And yet, unable to surrender to sleep.
I saw you not know what to say when there was so much to be said.
I saw you looking, and wondered if you really saw anything.
I saw your wishes and hopes play across your face, expressed in your eyes, felt in your heart.
I saw you try not to cry, and then saw you laugh.
I saw your expression of the most sincere devotion I have ever seen. Simple and elegant, and pure.
I saw you look at him, watch him, when his eyes were closed. And I could see how you felt about him.
I saw all of you.
And knew I saw what love looks like.
When I saw you.
