Don't tell me that you don't know me, for I am you
And you me
And we watch each other daily across a sea of unhappy eyes
I catch your look
And immediately know you
Feel who you are
Know that we are brothers
I do not drop my gaze
Because I want you to know that I am there
That I understand, though I may not speak the words
You go your way
And I mine
But, I know that we have touched
Have known
Have shared, not so much a pain
The pain is understood
And different for each one of us
But, we have shared a deepness in our souls that comes from this
And is the same
An openness to suffering
At first
And then to caring, and to hope and to love
And at last to a healing that could not have come alone
And in that instant of the meeting of our eyes, we know
We understand
That we have met a brother on our way
And have been blessed to know of his passing

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

That is so true. I have met so many other survivors now, and each time I meet someone new I look into their eyes and feel that we are sharing something. As you say, there is that feeling of, "I know, and I understand." And more too: "It's okay. I accept you as you are."

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
