More Than a Mile

If I saw the world through your eyes, I wonder what I’d see.
With your understanding what would my understanding be?

Would my view be different? I am pretty sure it would;
I think I’d enjoy a walk with your eyes through a snowy wood.
It would be so good to see all the things that give you joy,
and watch, with your intensity, your newborn baby boy.
I’d love to share your vision while out walking in the rain,
and I could know you better if I looked out through your pain.

If I saw the world through your eyes, I wonder what I’d see.
Having your perspective would I ever dare look at me?

      To see oursels as others see us!
      It wad frae monie a blunder free us,
      An’ foolish notion.”
      – – Robert Burns

      Thank you Sarah. Burns had it right; even so I wonder how many, presented with such a gift, would dare accept it. Our illusions are very precious to us.
