Holding Eye Contact

Have your eyes ever held onto someone else’s
during labor, an earthquake, storm, tumult?
And, while conflict and terror rage around you,
you feel safe held in that eye contact –
you feel the calm, the courage, the strength
coming through the space between you.
You know, whatever happens, you’re not alone.

I want to be that for you.
Look here. Look at me. You’re not alone.
I’m with you in the storm.

Holding eye contact
with God – with Truth, Life, and Love –
focused on what’s true.
