With New Eyes

(From her book "Somewhere in the Middle of Love")

 by Lisa Lipscomb

 

Dear Lord, sometimes I hide in a sleeping disguise

But today I pray to see with new eyes

New eyes to see the sun at dawn

New eyes as I stretch and stand and yawn

New eyes as I step out of bed, thanking You for the day that lies ahead

New eyes as my eyes meet and greet Your children, passersby on the street

 

May the contact we make include a smile, felt deep within, connected by spirit

Our intent being to heal and mend

Let the meeting of our eyes and the feelings deep within add a light to the world, a flicker growing glow

 

May that light show us a path, get our energies to flow- higher and lighter, releasing and renewed

And the actions that follow be of good intent, reflecting more of You

And as my eyes see and my heart feels and my intentions turn toward You

Please help me remember, embrace hope and surrender the burdens

That would make me feel blue

 

And as I wake with new vision and vogor, may the words I speak and the response they trigger

be of love and light, that wake us all and put into flight... A dream world with a peaceful landscape, where babies and children and adults can escape...

from the one with old eyes and closed eyes and dark hearts and destructive parts, led by ego and I could go on and on

But I can also stay focused on goodness,, I know this

 

May we remain open to the changes needed within

May we be open, may we be free, may we spread peace and harmony

May there be a space for joy and laughter, springboard for a cycle

Which produces the desire to think again and feel again

And see with new eyes our world again
