In Your Eyes, I See Her

IMAG0482.jpg

Her presence is reflected in

your darling infant irises;

she plays hide-and-seek with me

‘tween shadow and late sunlight.

Forgive my tears, sweet baby niece—

your auntie is not sad at you;

 

I am merely overwhelmed

by the transcendence of love.

 

A day will come when you will know

the strength that courses through your veins—

a legacy of fighters.

 

Morgan,

you’re a warrior.

I see her in your eyes.
