  I saw you today
thru eyes that were clear
there was no gift wrapping
no ribbon or bow

but the smile you gave me
told me all I needed to know

You stood taller and strong
a wise handsome young man
Walking and Talking
proving them wrong

You gave me that smile
so full of unspoken thanks
and then made me laugh when you quoted me outloud

"if its not on mom's calender you don't get to do it"
adding in only half jokingly
Even if its the Grim Reaper requesting you play

Your sisters all laughed while nodding their heads
knowing the gift we had been given instead

I saw you today
thru eyes that were clear
clear of the pain that had clouded the tears for so long
instead I could see thru the new tears that fell like
snowglobes...magical happiness all around
