Look into my eyes.....

If you look into my eyes

you will find a young lady who has the ability

to laugh hysterically and cry uncontrollably

all in a day

You will find the jokester and life of the party

amongst her circle

Look into my eyes and you will find

I'm a mother, wife and friend

someone who puts others before her

loves those who angered her

befriends those who are different from her

brings those to tears in laughter

warms hearts with compassion and sincerity

but look a little deeper

You will find a young girl who still seeks approval

who's pain is deep and tears are shallow

but look a little deeper and you will find

the contentment of my present

the excitement of my future

the pain of my past

look a little deeper and you will find a young lady

who loves people

but wants to be alone (still tryin to figure that one out)

you will see a mother, wife and friend

deal with the curses of MS daily but ignore it

and keep it moving

you will find someone who will love so hard

til' it hurts

who has dealt with her own insecurities

not big enough, not tall enough and yes

not dark enough

Looking into my eyes will tell you

where I've been

the path I've followed

and pain I've endured

but look into my heart and you will find

where I'm headed

the happiness I' ve felt

and the journey I'm seeking

Look into my eyes......

Very beautiful and insighfulm post, Tia. While reading, I thought to myself..."yep, yep, yep..." Like you I too love hard, but I wouldn't change it for the world because it only means that when I am in love, I am in love.

I didn't know you suffered from MS. I know what you mean when you speak of loving...but wanting to be alone. I can't explain it, either.

Yeah, there's not much I would change just improve on. Yep diagnosed on my brother's bday 3-6-06..days arent easy but having MS has been a blessing. I've been able to share so much. I have to spread how God has been good to me! My family, even hubby forgets what I deal with everyday. God blessed me to have MS without it having ME!
