If Only

You have intrigued me since I have known you. I recently found myself wondering what I would see if I could look at the things I am so familiar with, through your eyes. Would they still be familiar? Would I still love the things that I love if I could have your thoughts about them?

I wonder what it would be like if I could understand the things that now have me confused. I wonder whether I would understand you if I could see through your eyes. I have such trouble with that. Trying to understand you feels like running after butterflies trying to catch them. Maybe that's because of your complexity. Maybe it's because of mine. Perhaps I am too small to understand. Perhaps I am too narrow-minded. And perhaps I am looking in the wrong direction, or making things too complicated. It's all possible I guess.

The most important to me is that I should be afraid to see what I look like through your eyes. But I'm not. There's no evil in you. And through your fascinating eyes, this world couldn't be anything but beautiful.

I'm not sure who you wrote this for specifically, but it was beautifully said. ^-^
