There's a sadness in her eyes
that only some can see.
They understand the grief that holds her misery.
They've been there, they've lived, grieved and forgiven.
Those who don't know only see blue eyes masking
her true feelings.
The sinking feeling in your tummy,
the foggy eyes filled with worry.
The brightness lost in her face
and seeing something that cannot be replaced.
The magic was lost in that moment
and was found again for a time and loving moment.
But the sadness in her eyes crept back in
begging her to begin
to build her life step by step,
remembering to not forget
of the love and laughter that filled her heart
and her eyes that bled showing she was happy for a while.
Now they're dull and a mystery
and a smile is hard to grin and bear you see.
For that sparkle has been gone for a moment too long
because the sadness took it away. .
