Through Another's Eyes
Have you ever taken the time
To see and recognize
The beauty surrounding us
Through another’s eyes?
The rock in the stream
A child may pick up to hold
With a smile upon their face
To them its as special as gold.
The last rose on the bush
Before fall takes its toll
An elderly woman breathing its scent
Calming her soul.
The setting sun dipping in the ocean
The waves still hitting the shore
A surfer watches and grins
His body tired and sore.
A rainbow across the horizon
The colors numerous and bold
A grandpa with a child on his lap
Of luck and gold this story is told.
Take a little time each day
Just a minute to give it a try
Find the beauty in the little things
And see things through another’s eyes.
