Ok, this is what I came up with this morning..
Looking into the eyes of a child is such a mysterious wonder. The eyes that can show so much. Curiousity. Mischeviousness. Excitement. Sadness. Knowing that from everything they do, good or bad, is a learning experience. Eyes can tell so much, and yet keep so much in, if we let it. As we age, our eyes get better about hiding our feelings, but in children, with their inexperience, they have so much to tell us.
Looking into the eyes of my daughter, can reveal every emotion not willing to surface. Her puppy dog eyes will melt you. With her eyes blinking brightly in anticipation for praise because of something she accomplished, or looking at you with her questionable expression, not sure what she should do next. Her eyes always remind me of the eyes of a cat. One minute they are sleepy slits struggling to stay awake, and the next minute big brown eyes that twinkle, almost as if she's ready to pounce.
Right now her eyes show so much. And yet I know that soon she will learn how to conceal her feelings, like the rest of us do. I know that soon I will not be able to read her eyes as well as I can now. Her eyes tell such a story, a story that I pray isn't marked with too many harsh expeiences.
