You Are So Beautiful

I wanted so much to see you tonight
even though I’ve never seen you before.
Somehow I know that you exist
because even with my eyes close I’ve heard you.

You might have only come into my heart
through the keys of a computer screen,
Yet you have energized my soul with the walk
that your fingers have taken to communicate.

How can I ignore you when the only time I smile
is when the words appear before my eyes?
Bringing the sound of words that echo inside the ear drums
to pronounce the music that cheers my heart.

You are beautiful to hear and talk to no matter what
your appearance might indicate to swollen eyes.
Looks have often been deceiving because they lie and hide
far better than a trusting heart can see.

But your soul is a work of art as it expresses the beauty
that a blinded mind cannot understand.
And for these reasons and a thousand more
I wanted so much to see you tonight.

    I am listening to your breathing words oscarelizondo and these words breath gently on me, a wave of loveliness to inhale and enjoy. Such a beautiful, touching and tender write. This really resonates with me. Thank you for these words.

  • I am so honored that you find time to listen to my breathing words because it takes discipline and patience to recognize that I walk with my fingers as well as use them to comunicate my emotions as the keys automaticly move to the words that silently walk inside my brain. You are brave to listen and I thank you gracefully for continuing to make me feel so good inside as you comment to my writes. I can only hope you never stop your ear drums from hearing me express myself. Bless you and know that what you say goes a long ways inside my head at you help me feel so much at peace.

    ah bless you Oscar… this is so very beautiful…..
    How can I ignore you when the only time I smile
    is when the words appear before my eyes?

    so dreamy and beautiful with a toucing sadness that wants me to give you a big hug… xxx

  • Well, I manage to put my arms across myself and hug me for you, he, he ha, ha, and I thank you so much because you are so elegantly kind in expressing how my written emotions came to visit you in your mind as you read what was in my heart. You know me to do such things and I am glad I have not stepped on your toes again as I am sure I have done frequently with the way I express what my heart feels. I don’t like to step back and when these emotions need to exit my body I do it in words and I am bless to have you so patiently sitting there by the computer and viewing my inner thoughts.. Bless you for spending the time to listen to me again, thank you and I hope you continue to express your views as well.
