In Her Eyes, Mother to Daughter

In her eyes
I see myself.
Leaves of blue and trees of pink.

The world is turning patiently.
Waiting for me.

In her smile
I see myself.
Twinkling in the distance.
A quiet intention
And leap of blind faith.

A dream of jubilation
It’s here!
It’s real!
It’s she!
I could be.

See me watching with delight.
Hear me sing a quiet song.
Feel me touch your heart.
I’m giving you my love.
Can you feel it?

Smell the air with sweet intention.
You take me there.

A test of misconception.
I wandered into a dream.
Findingmy way,
Through webs of indignity.

It’s not as easy as it seems.

Commitment equals harmony.
I saw you,
In my dreams.


About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
