The Eyes of Nine

This is very late, but it is posted with much love...
There's beauty in the eyes of nine,
The way they have a lovely shine.
But not just in how they appear,
With their blue/green sparkle so very clear.

The beauty comes from what they see,
It can be so different from you and me.
The interpretation of the world around,
Can be far better than those who surround.

Eyes of nine are still amazed,
With God's creation found these days.
They aren't blinded by the bitterness that comes with years,
Or distracted from the glory that is so clear.
The eyes of nine laugh without sound,
With a heart full of love for those around.
Such a blessing the gift of sight, this time
Looking through the eyes of nine.
Happy birthday to my little Duck, December 2, 1999
My wish for you - Psalm 27:14. Look it up!
