TITLE: Through Almond Eyes

When our daughter was born with down syndrome, I was devestated and felt such loss over what I percieved her life would be. She is the most wonderful gift and I learn from her every day.
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.
