Why can’t you see me

The me that lies within?

~

Why do you only see

The package I’ve been placed in?

~

Why can’t you see

The love I have to give?

~

Why do you only see

The wrappings that I live in?

~

Why can’t you see me

And the heart I’d give so freely?

~

Why do you only see

The package that heart was placed in?

~

Why can’t you see

The faithfulness I offer?

~

Why do you only see

The wrappings that honor lives in?

~

Why can’t you see

The me that lives within?
