Always felt those eyes stare
And wondered what else it dared!
Though always from a distance
A stare that lasted an instant.
The feeling of “I’ll-get-to-meet-you-someday”
Echoed every time it passed near
Couldn’t help but ponder why
Decided to let sleeping dogs lie.
Now those eyes have a heart
And a body to that
I no longer see them in isolation
But a bright part of a nation.
And I know that beneath the silent
Is a source not tapped yet…
That flows ceaselessly and quietly
But surely runs deeply.
I watch and imagine years from here
And chuckle @ what my thoughts dare.
Thoughts I’m unwillingly to share
Yet they are obviously there!
…All because those eyes stared!
