Dedicated to my dear Mother, Barbara Shaw,
who died just a few months ago
after many years of poor health and dementia.
Dedicated, as well, to caregivers everywhere.
They say the eyes are
Mirrors of the soul,
And I really do believe
That this is true.
For, when I look into yours,
Though sometimes conflict
And pain look back,
Jesus looks back at me as well.
I see Him holding you so close,
Loving you so much,
And I hope that my eyes
Reflect Him back to you.
