Soft Eyes, Strong Heart.

She is soft in her eyes

& so at first glance, you might mistake

her kindness

for weakness

but those who look 

a little further

find she is strong in her heart 

believe me when I say 

a woman who is soft in her eyes

and strong in her heart

is not deceiving

she is enlightening

though her face may not boast 

that she is unbreakable

her heart has learned to carry 

the weight of her suffering 

with utmost poise 

it has learned to carry 

the weight of yours too

so believe me when I say

a woman who is soft in her eyes

and strong in her heart

is impossible to forget.

-she is my mother
