Eyes to Her Soul

She stares into her soul

Through her own eyes

What’s reflected she does not know

She can’t look at that woman

She can’t face the secrets untold through those windows

Those windows are shaded by unneeded sunglasses

The barrier to the truth

The men and women of a time remembered

A self-discovery of who she is

What she inherited

She looks again

Someone opens the blinds

And smiles back

Her irises dance

She thought she’d see tears

But tears don’t hide behind these eyes

Recognition, joy, loving, knowing and wanting

All live in this house

Her soul’s been waiting for this day

Please come in it says, welcome home
