She Has My Eyes….
Written on September 13th, 2011 by V. Rodney Harrison Jr.

With warm coffee in hand while gazing through the window,
I watch the snowflakes dance quietly from the sky.
And I daydream back to kind memories of my childhood,
Of more simple days long since been passed by.

With a deep breath that amounts to a reminisce sigh,
My soul reclaims memories of Merry Christmases past.
I can recall how ever carefree life appeared to be,
And how innocence would seem to eternally last.

The warmth of the fireplace burning freshly chopped wood,
With the sweet aroma of sugar cookies baking nearby.
My friends at the door chanting “hurry – let’s go!”
As I grab scarf and sled and kiss Mommy goodbye.

Family at the dinner table telling stories and laughing,
Grandma’s turkey and dressing abundantly filling us all.
Night services at the church as we thank God for our Savior,
Then gleefully caroling all about singing Deck the Halls!

I think to myself how I wish I could go back and return,
To those days that were so much better than……………

A small hand tugs on my sleeve and wakes me from my daze,
And a sweet voice asks “Daddy, are the cookies ready?”
I look down and see the innocence and joy in her eyes,
And its then that I realize I am back there already….
