Through Almond Eyes

Through Almond Eyes

With childlike faith and simpleness
Trusting and exposed
I wonder….
Would it make me sad or wise?
What would it be like?
If I could see through almond eyes.

What a trust I have
To teach and shield and shelter
This little one
Whose weakness some despise
All because she looks and sees
through dazzling almond eyes.

Uncomplicated, straightforward
Her mind is lacking strength
But being filled with love and grace
I should not be surprised
Observing the compassion
she shares with almond eyes.

A bundle of joy and energy
Embracing those around
Greets every challenge big or small
Nothing’s too hard to try
Enthusiasm flashes
through sparkling almond eyes.

Unhurried childlike faith
Naïve and sometimes slow
Even though she learns and grows
She still bleeds and cries
My heart breaks into pieces
seeing tears in almond eyes.

Delicate beauty,
This precious soul
In weakness she is strong
Her spirit shines as she relies
Arms open to her Father
with trusting almond eyes.

There are those who cannot see
The depth of splendor there
They overlook the treasure
But blindness flees as they gaze
One never could deny
The mystery of God’s love for all
shining from those almond eyes.





If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is such a beautiful tribute to Down's children everywhere. I have tears glistening in my eyes as I read the vivid and loving description of those precious eyes. The meter needs a tiny bit of work to help it flow. I too often struggle with meter, but your message and words are so perfect, it hardly matters. WOW!

Cindy, this is incredibly written and filled with the compassion only a mother could have. Have you thought of sending it to periodicals or magazines. It's wonderful! With Love, Cindy

I agree wholeheartedly with the first comment posted here. This is a simply exquisite poetic portrait of your little child. I would imagine there are any number of publications designed for those who love and work with children (for example: a niece of mine used to work for an international adoption agency, her job including putting out their newsletter) that would be touched by your words, here. This deserves wide readership!
