I caught a glimpse
the flash of a glint
gleaming thru a squint
I looked in her eye.
Looking into time
past or future, that’s for sure.
In a blink, I saw
in her eye, what I saw:
The strength of a woman,
the struggles of a woman.
The sweetness of the woman
in the eyes of this woman.
Suppressed disappointments and feelings of failures,
The softness of the woman,
intuition of a woman.
Perceived tears beneath the surface
This one would cry easy,
breakdown into heaves and sobs. O for her weakness.
The smile was there, ‘twas in there somewhere
playing with the eyes, wrinkling at the corner
rippling the blinds on the windows of her soul.
All this, I saw; in a flash I saw.
all this, I saw in her eyes as I walked by.
