He Gazed Up at You, with Those Eyes So Curious

He gazed up at you, with those eyes so curious, and it never once occurred to you, that you are his role model.  He gazed up at you, with those eyes so curious, you’re his hero, someone who knows everything, about everything, there’s NOTHING you can’t do.

He gazed up at you, with those eyes so curious, with questions he wanted the answers to, and yet, you turned your head away from him?  Why?  Because he’s too young to comprehend?  Because he couldn’t understand your words, but he can understand the tone of voice you take with him.

He gazed up at you with those eyes so curious, wanting your time, but, you’re WAY too side-tracked, way too busy, way too stressed out, or way too WHATEVER, you failed to pay attention to your son, and he still grew up, just like you had, didn’t he???

He gazed up at you with those eyes so curious, and, those eyes, they searched for answers, and you can’t give it to him, because some things, he just has to experience by himself, on his own, because that, is just how life works, and, there’s NO explaining anything to anybody out there…
