These eyes you possess are magical
I could stare at them for days
But, have you ever focused on the story they tell?
Or the lies they hold?
Because one day it could all flip on you
Have you ever thought about that?
These eyes you possess are sad
They hold so many tears, so much despair
Eventually I hope to see them filled with joy
That day has yet to come

These eyes you possess are free
To see whatever they would like
However, have you ever thought about the secrets they hold?
Or the memories they contain?
Because one day those secrets might come out
Have you ever thought about that?
These eyes you possess are tired
So full of fatigue
I hope one day I can see them full of light
That day has yet to come

But these eyes you possess are beautiful
They capture me in their delicate manner
Those brown and green eyes
Hold me and keep me intact
And when I say I need those eyes
It’s because those eyes are mine
But, the day is yet to come
When I see them full of light
But only in the night do they come out to greet themselves
It sounds mysterious and fragile

But these eyes I possess are strong
They protect me from what I should not see
And they let me see the things that keep me sane
However, today is the day I see them full of light
Today is the day I saw you for the first time
I plan on keeping that one moment in my eyes forever

Yet, today is the day when I see your eyes
And the secrets they hold
The fatigue they grasp
And someday
I hope you can have the strength my eyes possess
And one day, I will look at your light blue, green eyes
And see myself
In the story behind your eyes

    Very sad in some places but you write from within and that is beautiful in itself.
