In Your Eyes

BY PAMELA JO BOWMAN – MESA, ARIZONA – My daughter is away at school. Today was her first day of classes. I felt I could call tonight and not seem completely overbearing. We had a delightful conversation. She emailed me her blog address. I checked it out and felt pride not as a mother, but as a woman. She gives me hope that her generation sees the value in themselves and each other. So, to the class of 2011, our future rests in your eyes.wistie1.jpg

1648-1695

Turn your eyes toward yourself
and you’ll find in yourself and in them
not only occasion for love
but compulsion to surrender.

Meanwhile my tender care
bears witness I only live
to gaze at you spellbound and sigh,
to prove that for you I die.
