The Eyes Have It

A child's eyes so full of light
Innocent, pure, sweet delight
With wonder yet intelligent
Perfect love and so immense

The eyes are the window of the soul
Where all the lies and truths be told
Where tears of wounds and love are found
Of blue, of green, of violet or brown 

Then one day the light is replaced
With shadows of hurts we all must face
A few short years, it's not that long
The has light faded and then moved on

So we adapt and become who we are
Some of us fail and some become stars
We learn and we grow, that is our fate
Today contributes to our future state

One day when we are really old
The wisdom in those eyes that hold
Eyes are faded from their former glory
Another page written of our story

Human eyesight has betrayed us for sure
Memories blinded, others just blurred
Yet somehow we see better than ever
Appreciate life and all it's treasures

The eyes are tired and need a rest
Close them now, take the last breath
As the memories in our eyes fade away
The eyes of our spirit will light the way.
