An inkling

There’s something in your eyes, little girl, that spoke to me.

Made me see everything familiar and everything that I love all in one instant.

Wise quality in this look of yours that spoke to me.

Made me realize that you will just get older and I will watch you become older.

The look on your face seems knowing – you’re thinking about something special here.

The discreet smile on your lips, your confidence apparent.

I think I’ve just seen the adult that you will become here, as I wipe the happy tear from my eye.

You have my heart forever, my life forever.
