The Look In Her Eyes

Wide-eyed amazement
Applause from the crowd
Reception and approval
Encouragement so loud
Emma on a show court
18 years and counting
Vanquished her opponent
Wimbledon anointing

The power of approval
To swell the heart with pride
The roar of a crowd
Supporting your own side
The guidance of a father
A mother’s tender care
The simple force of friendship
So armed we punch the air

The days of life are many
The challenges shall come
To meet them are you ready
Will you overcome?
Alone our power subsiding
We sink we lose our touch
It’s the power of those who love us
That means that means so much
