"Angel Eyes", Poetry by Nette

"Angel Eyes"

Angel eyes so beautiful
So blue and crystal clear,
As azure as the sky
and as the oceans may appear.

Every morning I see your face
It makes me want to smile,
I see the stare in your eyes
That lasts for miles and miles.

There's nothing that you can't do
with a smile so sweet,
with a mind so peppery
but you do it so discreet.

You keep your eyes busy
nothing leads you astray,
When I want to hold you close
You always run away.

I feel your sense of autonomy
It runs oh so deep,
Just like a river
It follows its own lead.

You'll go off and leave me here
A mother wanting more,
You'll go and do great things
That I know is sure.

You'll bring joy everywhere you go
To know you is a prize,
Each time someone looks
Into your Angel Eyes.

*For Natalia, the silliest, most independent, gorgeous girl around.
