Eyes of shimmering black velvet,
rivaled only by stars;
with lights that twinkle from within like diamonds.
Smiles seldom but true,
words few but direct.
Approaching life as it comes,
with unexpected, yet deliberate sincerity.
As steady and patient as the day is precious;
you rush for no one –
even as you tightrope the precipice between
boyhood and adolescence; gracefully,
and with feet grounded firmly.
Your disposition adapts from moment to moment,
even in precarious uncertainties…
My peaceful spirit,
unassuming in nature and fiery in temper.
Solid strength of demeanor –
Keeping all around you balanced yet on their toes…
Your presence reverberates wherever you are.
Ripples of calm and unobtrusive energy
that emanate from their originator
the effect that of a pebble on a pond,
light at first, momentum building within each new undulation
forming from the sheer inertia
of the tiny waves before them.
You, my child, you are change itself –
inspiring others to evolve
just to understand the dynamic soul you are.
