When I Look At Him

He looks at those photographs, with a smile so dim,

Sits there and wonders if the pain will ever end.

Remembering a time when everything seemed right.

Now he only has regrets that keep him up at night.

Staring in the mirror, he sees a future so grim.


But he can't see what I see when I look at him.

Because I see the man that I could love forever

I wish he'd see what I see.

I wish he'd see what I see.


His love is a bond that can't be severed.

Prays he'll give more than he ever had,

And even though he struggles,

He's still so beautiful.

I see a man who loves the Lord,

even though he stumbles,

His faith always soars.

I see the man who can admit his wrongs

Say “I'm sorry, forgive me” and still come off so strong.


But he can't see what I see when I look at him.

Because I see the man that I could love forever

I wish he'd see what I see.

I wish he'd see what I see.


This man I know has so much potential,

but he's wasting away, over something so simple.

I see that man that he thinks he wants to be,

In his mind he’s not real, he's just a fantasy.

I wish he'd see what I see.

I wish he'd see what I see


If only he could see through my eyes,

He’d realize how much he’s worth,

If he’d learn to love himself,

then maybe he'll see all that I do,

But he can't see what I see when I look at him.

Because I see the man that I could love forever

I wish he'd see what I see.

I wish he'd see what I see

When I look at him...

A song that I complied from a poem written about me. I don't have the original or I would have posted it. I had converted it not long after it being written. She loved me and I couldn’t love her back. Wouldn’t love her back? Still unsure of it all and I’m not sure if I wrote it wanting to believe it or what. I’m not sure what parts of it mean anything to me today. Something about it still holds some resonance, it’s why I’m sharing. In the end, we parted ways. I still haven't talked to her. Her faith in me helped me find my faith in myself and my faith in the Lord even though it took awhile for it to sink in. If you are reading this, Thank you!
