Eyes that sing even when heart’s still weighed.
Eyes that open hope’s grace while frayed.
Heart that battles to live with light
even though mercy has taken flight.
Smile that reaches beyond the form.
Smile that sings during the storm.
Body though bent and doubled with age,
still has strength to shatter the cage.
Hand that reaches out to caress.
Hand that’s broken yet still can bless.
Spirit undaunted that’s framed to shine,
all of the wonder of what’s sublime.
