You are my poem, my work of art.
Why do you scrutinize your face
With anxious eyes and troubled heart?
I yearn to set you in my place
That day I formed you in a cell
When you were but a dream away.
The truth is that I planned you well;
Each molecule of DNA
Would be fulfillment of my dream.
Your eyes reflect the world at dawn,
Rose petal soft your skin, like cream.
I find you fair to look upon.

Iíve watched you move from place to place
And learn so well you made me proud.
I leaped for joy when you found grace;
The angels heard me cry out loud.
Now my concern is for your soul,
That part of you that is not seen.
Oh, how I long to make it whole;
To see it sparkle pure and clean.
So rise and don your finest clothes,
Follow the path that I have trod,
Become the likeness that I chose.
Yes, be my child--I am your God.

"Through His Eyes" declares without any reservations - this writer is a remarkable poet. Extremely well done! Kudos!

Sometimes I have trouble reading poems and keeping with the flow when longer sentences are used - but this flowed very well to me. I loved the point and the perspective. Well done.
