“Beyond the Eyes”
Eyes are often green, blue or gray
they can see so clearly along the way.
Why indeed with such vision they see
the wonder, the joy and the glee.
Yes, so often, they never really see
what’s inside, the good in me.
They only see, with short-sightedness
the soul inside, which should be caressed.
Others can help and surround with love
but it’s your eyes alone that can see above.
Above disappointments and goals not achieved
to look beyond what you think you really need.
to focus on the good, worth person inside
to accept the gifts we have often put aside.
To see ourselves clearly is not a job for the eyes
but for the heart and soul to finally realize.
