Poem: On My Mind

She sees the world
Through loving eyes
A special place to be

And as I gaze
Into her eyes
Her magic speaks to me

A welcomed smile
And cheerful laugh
Enraptured by her ways

If but one wish
Were granted me
With her, I’d share my days

I wrestle words
And read aloud
Then put them in a poem

She’s on my mind
each waking breath
Thoughts of a happy home
