A Gaze Refocused

The need to see through new eyes what has become too familiar to our own.

Familiar, comfortable, well worn

It is easily overlooked

As it sits there unassuming

near a stack of books

With accustomed gaze refocused

New value is seen within

Weathered finish now uncovered

As an aged glow settles in

A piece of furniture we’d value

If this we now described

But of person close and known to us

We often don’t abide

A chipping at the surface

Often needing to take place

To remind of treasure hidden there

Behind familiar face
