Tear Stained Faces

(* Real life raising a child w/SN)

your tear stained face
your hair all a mess
your wild eyes peering at me
wondering if I see you
wondering if I understand
oh how I try
patience comes and goes
but love abounds
tears begin to stream down my face 
I turn so you won't see my hurt
my heart all a mess 
my eyes must mirror the doubt
both of us carrying such strength
the bond between us immense
our hearts' emotions are entwined
thoughts are portrayed with a simple look
our tear stained faces gaze back at one another
your questioning thoughts and my doubtfulness has vanished
replaced by a peace filled love
I see you
I understand
