La Chica de los Ojos

I wish that I had been the one
who snapped the shutter
and captured your essence
in that photograph,
the one that caused me
to dub you
La Chica de los Ojos.

Every time that I see it,
it plays the movies
of your life,
as witnessed by you:

all the joys, laughter,
wonder, excitement,
searching, sorrows,
possibilities, scenes,
sadness, longing,
and hopefulness
that make up who
you are --
revealed in those eyes:
La Chica de los Ojos.
