Headline Poem 5/5/14 -- In Your Eyes

Motherhood (Photo credit Google Image)

I read this interesting headline tonight about motherhood awards in India. It made me think of my own children, and how they see me through their eyes, and what I see in theirs. 

In Your Eyes

In your eyes 
Of sweet blue 
I see my heart 
And truth. Hope lives
Inside your wide
Expressions. 
Your laughter and pain
I stare into them 
and 
practically 
Melt. Away. 
My job is honorable and
dignified. 
I smile because in your eyes
I am mom.
You deserve to feel me 
Wholly,
Faithfully,
Completely. 
In your eyes, 
I am 
Pure Love.
