Tim’s Eyes

I wrote this when Tim was only 2 months old. I like to think that the eyes have passed to his son Isaac too, although the mom’s side has its share of blue-eyed beauties too.

Tim’s Eyes

By Sharon L. Bratcher

I’ve see those eyes

A million times before;

Tho’ you, my tiny son

Have only looked through them

For two months.

I turn from my book to gaze at you

And I’m surprised

At the familiarity I feel.

Yes, I’ve see those eyes,

In my daughter,

My sister, my Dad,

In the mirror,

And now in you.
