Their Eyes

I am blessed to gaze at the
most beautiful ten eyes

Five sets that gaze with
endless love and curiosity

I know each one intricately,
their colors, lines and corners

These ten little windows
adorned with gorgeous lashes

Each one is a window
into my child's soul

Each beautiful child
so individual and unique

Yet as I gaze at each pair of eyes
I know immediately who is who

As their mother I also know
the emotion untold that each one holds

A smile, a tear,
giggles or fears

A love so unique is motherhood
a long and winding road

I could sing of high joys and
and wince at our lows

And I know each of these are told
in their eyes that I behold
