See Her

Standard

Chasing Rainbow By Judy Underwood

See her

Fun is first nature

Wonderment and exploration

Dancing, twirling, laughing, tripping

See her

She won’t always be this way

Relish in what she delights in

What she marvels at

What she runs to grasp

See her

Keep this image in your heart

Reclaim it yourself

See yourself

Chase a rainbow bubble

  1. You spoke to my heart in this one, Stu! Even before I got to the end, I was imagining myself opening my arms in the same way, opening my arms to life. =) I grasped a twofold message in this poem: to really appreciate the moment and to live with more childlike wonder. Thank you so much for the reminder! =)
