Her eyes are blue, blue as the seas

It’s easy to get lost when she looks at me

Her eyes are so sad! They carry the weight

Of thousands of dreams that she dreamt too late

And I know that if there were one way

For me to help her, to extinguish her pain

I’d do it without question, without thought or regret

But I cannot do that. It’s too much to forget.

And I can only stand there as she wrestles with her pain

Knowing that, from this point on, I will feel the same
