Excerpt

Just A Moment
I have just a moment to say what I need to say,
Just a moment to do what I need to do.
Just a moment to cry
Just a moment to wipe my eyes
Just a moment to love those I love
Just a moment to re-live the lie I just lived.
Just a moment to die.
Just a moment to want to live,to love the last moment I live.

Reader Reviews for "My Eyes Smile"

Reviewed by Barbara Henry 6/13/2012
Thought provoking poem Priscilla, and so very true.
Were we to realize just how little time we have, I believe the world would be considerably kinder and gentler.
Continued success.
Barbara J. Henry

Three lines from the end, that could be said for all of life. At the end of life, the last thing we expect to hear someone say is "Really wish I spent more time pleasing my boss."

My Eyes Smile is an inspiring collection of poetry written from the heart by author
Priscilla M. (Pat) Francis Dozier. Pat invites the reader into her life experiences, drawing on her hopes and dreams, successes and failures, and most of all, the love for her children, grand-children, husband, and friends.

Many of the seventy selections are dedicated to her family. However, the strength of the book is the way in which she is able to, in a dozen or so uncomplicated lines capture a snapshot of her life, detailing her sorrow, frustrations, love, and simple joys.

I look at some of my favorites.

In Fence Friend a neighbor is honored with warm memories. A fence between them couldn’t halt the good conversation and companionship. Pat writes, “She was my fence friend. She had a heart of gold.”

Don’t Second-Guess reminds us to trust our instincts. She writes, “To second-guess is to not believe in yourself.” Good advice for charting a course through life’s decisions.

For me, one of the most memorable selections was Death (No Tears) in which she suggests that tears are wasted on the dead. She writes, “When a person dies, we should rejoice. He suffers no more, there is no pain.”

On a lighter side, Pat looks at the state bird and flower of Louisiana in The Magnolia and later, The Pelican. The Obama family hasn’t escaped Pat’s pen either. She dedicates First Family to them and writes “American History will never be the same.”

I Hate Me packs a wallop in what is definitely the emotional highlight of the book. She writes, “I hate me for giving you so much power over me.” I commend the author for having the courage to include this affecting selection.

After such a moving piece a much lighter poem waits just a few pages on. The Best Things in Life are Free states, “Hug a child. Walk a mile. The best things in life are free.”

My Eyes Smile is an uplifting, quick read. Author Priscilla M. Francis Dozier has opened a door to her life. Stop in, pick up a copy, set aside some time from your busy life, and enjoy uncomplicated verse.
