The Look

The Look

Strephon kissed me in the spring,
Robin in the fall,
But Colin only looked at me
And never kissed at all.

Strephon’s kiss was lost in jest,
Robin’s lost in play,
But the kiss in Colin’s eyes
Haunts me night and day.
—Sara Teasdale

Though perhaps not as often as neurotypical kids, C can and does make eye contact…and when he does, I melt.


  1. I love it Michael. I just LOVE it! Thank you for sharing this…

    His look reminds me of my favorite part in the movie HOOK when the little lost boy goes over to an overweight, grumpy Peter, grabs his face in his hands and looks long and hard at Peter’s eyes(like he is looking at Peter’s soul) and we see the boy smile and gently say: “Oh there you are Peter!”

    What beautiful things are seen, discovered and contemplated, through Mr. C’s eyes!

  2. Those eyes, those eyes those big beautiful eyes….they speak volumnes and luckily we all understand him. C’s eyes and heart saya it all with love and affection. We are lucky to be in all the families lives.
