Generations

Her flashing eyes pierce me
see into my hidden center
as all my faces drop away.
Her questions provoke mine
babbling history for hours
shields down, telling, sharing.

Quiet voices in wee hours
discussing and discovering
she tells me about her church.
Both fresh from bad relationships
our past seems almost entwined
crying shared tears, once again.

She smiles a quiet smile
as we talk in the darkened
we hug and go our separate ways.
She laughs, thanks tenderly
as I loan my old teddy bear
she won't sleep alone tonight.

Her flashing eyes pierce me
meeting after years of knowing
her smile restores and reminds.
Grandmother, mother and daughter
all teach, reach, touch my soul
thankful...I lay me down to sleep.
