Seen and Known

Seen and known.
We all long to be seen and known.
In our quest for this reality,
We are hopeful.
We invest ourselves.

We are present--
Ever present.
We make eye contact.
We listen.
We catalog tidbits and nuggets
Gaining ground, getting close.

All a strategy in the seeing
All a pursuit of the knowing.
We know so much . . .
And so little.

Our longing hearts
Seek more.
Not just the seeing
Not just the knowing.

Seen and known.

We want what we cannot make.
We give, but with no giving back;
We cannot take.
We feel the lack.

And so we still sit alone.

Seen and known.
