My glasses don’t get as much recognition as she deserves.
Every day I take her for granted!
She could be content in a world without me,
But not I without her.
She is my hawk,
Requiring preening of her feathers often,
A cleansing to clear her vision
in a way I could never hope to see.
She subtly smiles above compliments.
She serves me well, although she knows that
Like all others before her
She will retire
And see no more.
