Pain now is temporary And those eyes will always hold a glint for me I will--am chasing that glint Until I belong to them, And they want to belong to me
Until that silver shines through me Amplifying My eyes, my nose, my mouth, Everything.
Until that light reflects back Brighter to them Hopefully Than my open, vulnerable, enamored, Eyes received them Though I know I'll never believe it if they say so
I can see it now, Can you? The flash from their eye? As quick as their breeze walking past, But twice as warming Now their smile! A smile I would bear the rest of my life alone If only at my final conscious sight I would see it Once In person
