The Nur Of My Eyes

Those generously big radiant eyes
Send away glances, shower me with joy

running her tiny fingers
through my round face

making me feel loved
loved beyond all flaws

needed despite my weaknesses
looked upon as a heroine

a superhuman, for I carry
I feed, I play and Pray

to see you simle, laugh
and mumble mama.

    A touching, caring and tender expression of love- brief, but brautiful. Wish you would write more
