His Eyes Were the Color of Ice

He seemed like an overgrown teddy bear
clumsy and often apologetic
for stepping on feet
or knocking over
glasses on table tops
and when my frustration

started to rise
impatient with his antics
he looked up at me with
his turquoise eyes,
the color found in glaciers,
a deep cold
too many years old
and in that instant

I forgave him
and let him know
that he was welcome
to move around
without apology

I watched him
and his
blue green eyes,
not icy but deep,
reflecting time
for all
