Can You See


A portal to my soul
An entrance to my heart
A journey into my being
Through my eyes is where to start

Compassion formed as tears
That may well, but never fall
Blurring passions and desires
Held behind an eyelid wall

A love unseen in darkened eyes
My heart cries but unwept tears
A damaged soul regresses
Can you see my eyes, my fears?

A portal to my soul
An entrance to my heart
A journey into my being
Through my eyes is where to start

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
