I Saw You In His Eyes - Poem by cora fazio

Walking along a busy street,
I saw a small boy playing the violin.
Looking down on the sidewalk,
I saw his basket with a few coins.
Searching my pockets for what was
within.
I placed all I had into his basket.
And I wondered about his story.
His hair so black, his eyes so brown.
Jeans toren at the knees with many patches.
His violin screaching out an ackward tune.
I felt my heart bleed as
I saw you in his eyes.
And I wished I could take him home.

    Sweet word. We should all think of those on the streets, especially at this time of year. Little boy's lost, are a weakness of mine too cora. 10 from Tai, all the best for 2006 (Report) Reply
