My Child's Eyes

I wrote this poem years ago, yet lately I've been thinking a lot about it. 

We are heroes in our child's eyes.  We can be frustrated with them, and be less than perfect parents, yet they love us with such an unconditional love.  That love amazes me everyday. 

My Child's Eyes

Sometimes we imagine
A single moment in time
When we'll be the hero
With our own time to shine.

When the world will seem
To stand completely still,
And see you become whole
As your dreams are fulfilled.

Tho' the moment may not
Come by worldly acclaim
recognizable praise,
Nor with fortune and fame-

That moment of truth
I've come to realize
Is found everyday
In my own child's eyes.
