The Beauty of your eye

The beauty of your eye
doth make me sad
for in its jeweled
sapphire sea
I see a lonely heart
and it’s mystery.
I see the stars
twinkled moments
where you danced
childlike free
but in the pool
of dark pupils
I see, someone
lost like me.
The blue so bright
so real, so near
so brimmed with light
so close to tear.
How can it’s stain glass
light , pass the sunbeams
of delight?
To search instead
for a love long dead
to loose its shine
once so lustre filled
it’s jewels smeared
opaque not clear
a cataract stained
with life of fear.
A tide will soon
sweep the shore
and clean the sands
where on you stand
for you will find
a love once more
to dance with you
along the shore
and lights will switch
from off to on
and eyes like stars
will shine on and on.
So now the moments
that still your self
will a sweeter self
soon shall brew
and in the mirrors
reflective stare
you’ll see a smile
that was never there
and welcome it back
like a long lost friend
for you found yourself
in the end.
