In my Nephew's Eyes

In my nephew's eyes
All is right in the world
I am his friend

In my nephew's eyes
There are no limits
He sees nothing but possibilities

In an instant, he can turn my day around
One laugh piercing my thoughts
One smile makes everything bright again

In him, I see joy
I've watched him go from a tiny baby to a little boy
Playing with abandon, not a care in the world

In my nephew's eyes, I can see the future
Everyday is an adventure
Who knew making mudholes and watching movies could be so much fun?

If I could bottle up the glimmer in his eyes
The loving touch of his hands
I would in an instant

I see one of the best parts of me
In my nephew's eyes

Mason, my oldest nephew, I'll love you forever!
