Your Eyes are so Big and Bright

Your Eyes are so Big and Bright My Son

Your eyes are so big and bright my son
I can see you smile with your eyes
But if I could never see you again
I’d still see the smile of your eyes, son
   see the smile of your eyes.

You eyes are so full of life my son
I can hear you laugh with your eyes,
But if I could never hear you again
I’d still hear the laugh of your eyes, son
   hear the laugh of your eyes.

You eyes are so big and brown my son
I can feel you love with your eyes
But if I could never feel you again,
I’d still feel of love of your eyes, son
   feel of love of your eyes.

Written March, 1988 for my son Nathan


I have had the great joy of writing a song for each of my children so that they knew their song growing up.  This was written for my son Nathan; I post this in celebration of his birthday today.

To me this is the echo of Zephaniah 3:17 as I have sung this song over my son.

About R.H. (Rusty) Foerger

As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of the role of elders today “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life” (Dr. James M. Houston). I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to: *decipher the enigma of our worth *rescue from the agony of prayerlessness *integrate spiritual friendship.
