in a mother's eyes

her daughter is beautiful,
inside and out
in a mother's eyes.

despite her idiosyncrasies,
despite her faults,
she sees the light
in her child's eyes.

she strengthens her,
supports her,
challenges her,
encourages her
to be who she is,
to continue living life
with love and courage.

in a mother's eyes-
she sees the beauty,
the strength,
the power within
that her daughter

she knows her daughter
will do well,
will learn from her mistakes,
will overcome obstacles,
will let her light shine on.

Shine on, mothers.
Shine on, daughters.
Shine on, sister friends.
Shine on.
