The Girl with the Faraway Look in Her Eye

I wrote this for the daughter of a friend, and tried to incorporate as many of her likes and personality traits (as conveyed by my friend) as I could.

*******************

The girl with the faraway look in her eye
Is watching the sun as it sets in the sky
Long summer days and warm lazy nights
She laughs with her friends as a candle ignites

The girl with the faraway look in her eye
Admires the flowers as she passes them by
Wearing a dress that floats as she walks
Seeing a friend, she stops and she talks

The girl with the faraway look in her eye
Is meeting her mother for coffee and pie
Her mum looks in awe at her daughter beside her
So gentle and kind, but also a fighter

Protective and giving to those in her heart
Her strength and her goodness are also a part
Of what makes her so special, thinks Mum with a sigh
She’s the girl with the faraway look in her eye
