In My Eyes

In my eyes- you are invincible:

Built to last. Without fault.

Even when wracked with cancer,

I couldn’t see your end upcoming.

To me, you were perfect.

I never saw a single fault.

It’s still a man who resembles

your character that I search for.

From the lake blue eyes to the

straight arrow of your advice.

From the slight temper that made

you bang on a table because the

typewriter malfunctioned to the

calming presence you had on others.

Not exactly a contradiction- just two sides

of a coin that my heart swallowed whole.

You’ve been gone for 20 years.

My heart still searches for your voice:

on the waves of the lake at the peninsula.

To the horizon outline of boats out past eyeshot.

To that inner calm and knowing that I’ve done

exactly what you imagined I would do.

A young child sitting at your feet grown

into a woman who’s definition of success

is hearing you tell me You did well.
