Within Her Eyes…

image

Without she seemed so peaceful

Within her burdens hid

Ever kind with all she shared

As deep her worries slid

True-born the Gift to Nurture

All innocence…All worn

Always free with gentle hands

To lift the lost forlorn

Maternal in her nature

Strong as the mighty tree

She fought against injustices

With firm integrity

She never asked of others

Her instinct was to give

While in her heart raw grief was borne

And in her eyes tears lived…

  1. Oh my.. Very touching. I had forgotten how beautiful your poems were; due to not being in the right frame of mind. I have always liked poems especially those that don’t rhyme. I really like this one..
