IN YOUR EYES





 

I’ve strolled through the ages
Played every part once penned
Observed fools ignore the sages
Met every saint that sinned

I spoke before my madness
Became a deafening silence
Was touched by trials of sanity
Mistook shadow for substance

Along came a second chance
That many don’t perceive
You kissed me out of my dream
And crowned me with reprieve

You knighted me your hero
Halted my two tiered descent
Deterred me from death’s fire
Had my foolish desires repent

I took life’s breath for granted
Would have watched it all pass by
Could have no recollection
If it wasn’t for the love in your eyes.
