• I WATCH


    I watch her, undetected
    the delicate outline of her face
    enveloped in a golden halo
    as the rays of sunlight peek
    through her window.

    My eyes swell with a crystal
    liquid that glistens
    as it spills off my cheek.


    So many things I had hoped
    my precious, innocent daughter
    would experience in her lifetime
    dashed the opportunities
    that should have been hers.


    I see such pain in her eyes
    at times, I want to scream out
    but dare not.


    What longings she desires
    she had hidden well
    by actions, for the most part.


    But, then the song comes
    on the radio – I see
    her longing to know
    a normal life


    To be able to do simple things
    would she ever know a first date?
    Would she ever know the love
    only a man has for a woman?


    I watch as she sits
    so exquisitely quiet
    eyes of innocence
    filled with curious wonder


    I watch, as she watches
    other girls
    with an innocent smile
    she greets them
    yet they fear her


    I watch as my heart
    squeezed with agony
    my longings for her
    can not be so painful
    as her own must be.


    Her cheeks flushed
    just a hint of pink
    red pouty lips
    the hypnotic green, gold eyes
    surrounded by thick darkness
    lashes excessively long.


    I watch the quiet beauty
    of my daughter, her sadness
    but quickly the look fades
    as clouds dissipate with
    a wind blown sky
    she has spotted me


    Veiling her longing
    to live a normal life
    she feins a smile
    as I watch.


    Quickly, I must flee
    her room, her sight
    out of earshot
    I hear the agonizing moan
    not even the knot
    over filling my throat
    to cause physical pain
    can quiet
    it is coming from me,
    not her. Impatiently
    I await the redness
    to clear my swollen eyes
    then rush to her side
    I hug her, probably
    squeezing too tight


    I love you Doll
    I tell her
    as I watch
    and wait for our miracle.
