I see in your precious smile
An endless road,
With a wide eyed innocence
That journey’s beyond
What sight can see.
Contentment fills your face
As vivid as a rainbow’s arc
Through fine mist
Ever hinting of a loftier place--
A sacred place that dwells within.
My gaze falls upon a mature soul
Still nurtured in the bud of youth,
Who retains a wisdom of many lifetimes.
Your gentle guidance inspires your
Parents to reach for the unattainable.
I remain awestruck
By your radiating aura
As it intermingles with mine,
Leaving me exalted in knowing
You are a gift divine.
