  • Olive skin and her father’s dimples
    endless legs and optimism for days
    those hanging lobes
    that button nose

    Greek first, English last, and a Lebanese brow
    brunette locks (soon soothingly brushed)
    chestnut, certainly, or then, maybe more jet
    big eyes, likely – gems that love quietly

    You’re sincere and observant
    - at times, impulsive -
    because you’re curious
    and you know that joy opens up your ribs
    and radiates out

    You have a lot of friends
    because you eat well and share well
    everything, that is, except your books,
    which you smuggle into bed.

    You’re like us – and you’re not –
    and that’s what we love.

    I can’t guess much more
    because you are yours.

    Never one thing
    though you try many
    at a time and with passion

    Your strength is your openness.

    Never doubting
    at least of yourself.
