I look into the mirror, and see the eyes of my father
The hard lines, the blackness
the joys, and the sorrows that were his
as I gaze I come to understand
I feel his love, his purpose
his life and his pain
and I know he walks with me

This is very interesting, EagleOne - Just before I opened your poem, I was thinking of my dad, and how we need to accept our parents as fallible human beings to appreciate them for who they are.... and not expect more from them.. Thanks for completing the thought...

Welcome to Passions - I look forward to reading more of your work.  Check your email...

A beautiful poem, your short poem spoke enough to fill the pages of many books on the mystery of what's within us and those around us. I enjoyed it, thank you.
