Written within the soul of the eyes,
Acceptance has an everlasting look.
Recognizable in its lingering pause,
The gift of knowing brings such love.
It embraces and caresses all else in life,
Inspiring belief and encouraging hope.
Gratitude expressed is scarcely enough,
Actions manifest themselves in daily ways.
Connections to assure the heart and mind,
Pleasures of existence silently exchanged.
Without account nor expectation in return,
Thanks reciprocated in deepest appreciation.
