When You Look

A Poem That Perceives Your View

When you look at something special
like a painting on the wall
Like a sunset at the end of day
as the sun begins to fall
Like the snow in dead of winter
as the flakes land softly on the ground
Like a child that just won’t smile
with the cutest kind of frown
When you look at something special
that sets your heart to beat so quick
Something you can almost taste
like candy on a stick
Something that amazes
like a slick magician’s trick
Something that your mind records
like a Technicolor flick
When you look at something special
like that glow that fills her eyes
As she sends out all that love you feel
it makes you want to cry
Like the ocean with its soapy waves
that pounds all night and day
To capture all its secrets
in the deepest darkest caves
When you look at something special
can you say the same for them
What they perceive as special
may not be your chosen gem
For life stores its special moments
just for you to find someday
When you look at something special
it will never wash away.
