Eyes of Blue

I met a little girl today
eyes of bright blue
so much like you
and asked her mother of her age
"This little one's eight months"

Eight months, oh my
that's half as long
as you've been gone
how can that be, each moment an eternity
and a second all at once

The woman smiled when looking down
with adoring eyes
it was no surprise
I wonder if you ever felt
the smiles I cast at you

Sometimes I'm lost in thinking of
what couldn't be
for you and me
and wonder if you feel that too
wherever you have gone

No less my heart beats for you child
tears of love I've cried
even though you've died
no less I think of smiling at you
remembering those eyes of blue

  2. This is very beautiful. I think of Lukas all the time and wonder what he would look like now. But he will always be a baby to me.
