face to face

“Come,” my heart says, “seek his
   Your face, O LORD, do I seek.  Psalm 27:8

in the little kids
hopscotching on the walk,
   i see you face-to-face;
in the immigrants
moving into the flat
across the way,
   i greet you face-to-face;
in the forgiving smile
offered by the love
i hurt the most,
   I meet you face-to-face.
