Her Eyes

Mon, 06/17/2019 - 21:42 -- akudler

In her eyes everything is big and tall 

Trees sway like giants 

She notices every ladybug 

Each crack in the side walk is a canyon


In my eyes everything is tiny and small 

Letters on my keyboard

I forget what a chrysalis  is

Can't seem to drive by fast enough 


When you grow up everything gets blurry except what is straight ahead 

Only when I get on my knees and look in her eyes 

Do I see what really matters
