Poem – “Smiling Eyes.”

“Smiling Eyes.”

Long days & longer nights
Under blankets, out of sight.
A little girl with smiling eyes
Curls up for warmth; so tight.

Her nose, it flys to bait a scratch
And opens doors like lifted latch,
A face concerned in permanent
With fur that grows in patch.

The faintest sound of hurried feet
Leaving the covered underneath,
She gathers supplies and treats to eat
Despite a noted lack of teeth.

Over the years, she rose to fame
Gifted love & songs & many names
A curious heart and wanderer
Who left our lives forever changed.

Don’t be afraid now, smiling eyes
You are big and brave, despite your size.
Little candlelight of life,
I’ll think of you with each sunrise.

Long days and longer nights
Under blankets, out of sight.
A little girl with smiling eyes,
I’ll think of you with each sunrise.
