Eyes wide open

Though our eyes
may look wide open,
there's so much we don't see
when we're young:
we trust our parents
to see it for us.
But parents are young, too,
with a vision also clouded
by experiences
we may not understand.
Pray then, that as we grow
the scales may fall from our eyes,
that we may see
what we were born to see and do
but always through
the gentle film
of love.
