His eyes locked in to mine
peering deep into my soul
the soul of my heart
I felt him scanning inside
searching to understand
to make it right
His words potent and to the point
coming towards me
with the care of a gentle man
"why are you hiding Laur (my nickname)"
"I don't understand"
"why are you hiding"
I sat motionless for what seemed like an hour in a moment
His familiar hand
the one I had watched closely and admired as a child
now approaching my aged face
softly removing the hair hanging in front of it
he stroked my cheek ever so gently
with words that touched a place in my heart I thought may never be located from another
especially him...the original man, my father..my dad.
"You're so beautiful" he said with resonance and depth like that of a masterpiece
"You're so beautiful honey" as his fingers delicately touching my cheek
now felt like feathers on my heart wall
dusting off old crusted debris..
years of long held ideas of myself were now melting away
leaving only a pool of purity in its place
He sees me
He sees all of me
He loves me
I am deeply loved
In the hands of a mans words
carried on the wings of love and compassion, heaven sent
Grace had struck
In that moment my heart was changed forever
I was healed
With a few simple words and the touch of his compassionate hand
my heart was given a golden bath
I was renewed
Now resting on a golden pond
My heart beating softly
with wordless words and its vibrating sound
bubbling up from within...
