Daughter

Author: Hamish Hutchinson
Year: Future

I look into your eyes and see an astronaut,
Commence countdown, engines on,
Shaping constellations in your own universe,
Floating across the new frontier.

I look into your eyes and see a pirate,
Raise the sails and chart your course,
Australia your destination, your journey unfolds,
High seas on higher hopes.

I look into your eyes and see an artist,
Your mind a canvas,
Splashing colour, drawing on dreams,
The mess is amazing.

I look into your eyes and see a teacher,
Every day an education,
Your brother your classroom,
Your subjects; new tricks and bad habits.

I look into your eyes and see a storyteller,
Once upon a time or galaxies afar,
Heroine, adventurer, comedian, writer,
Every end a new beginning.

I look into your eyes and see the future.
