Eyes that sparkle

Poetry By: Brian Peza Perrins

Remember the starving children around the world, this poem was written about a young child that got on with life in the face of adversity and inspired others to carry on clinging to life.

Your eyes that sparkle, shine and sing
They mask the hardship life does bring.
Your yearning for comfort, food and love
Doesn't dampen that spirit that fits like a glove.
The smile that tells others there's hope out there
Maybe tomorrow could bring fruit to bear.
As hard as life is, you just carry on smiling
A caring hand, the thought so beguiling.
You stop to help others in need of assistance
The wanting to give up is met by resistance.
It's your eyes that sparkle, shine and sing
That brings hope to others of life to cling.
