Soulful Eyes

Updated on April 20, 2013

Below are words from a past encounter whom I had admired ...
A unique creature who comprehended some of my thoughts.
My eyes, have seen my Friend's laughter crease them, year by year showing that the wrinkles and crevices were evidence of their happier times, roll on wrinkles... Roll on many more such happy times.

My eyes have been puzzled by the way that my Friend has evaded a question, but radiated with the glimmer of hope that was unseen that everything hinged on their dreams coming true in Love.

My eyes have remained cool and unchanging when others flinched and turned away from pain; because they were witnesses courage and conviction in another's passing journey.

My eyes have seen the tears fill in the eyes of my Friend, well up, like deep reflected streams of silver, hang heavily in their eyes, making the eyelashes glisten.... Stay there filling, and then they have blinked to shut out the pain, and each eye has made a waterfall, that washed their cheeks and rolled down to their jawline.

Not even the mist shrouded SPIRITUAL LAKE CHIEMSEE, could have as much compassionate power as that moment of quiet reflection, and comprehension.... and then empathy.

My eyes consistently reflect the unspoken desires of each of us that can think, feel and just 'be'.... Therefore, my eyes are no different to anyone else's' eyes EXCEPT those of the truly blind, who can see but choose not to, and often close to avoid harshness or cruelty in others.... SO that by not seeing they do not have to think, or feel, therefore, they might have to act on.

Therefore, in conclusion, if the eyes are the mirror to the soul then mine is a witness to This Life, that I lead, which may itself be shiny, soulful, colourful, beautiful, dull, painful, painless, exciting, cruel, lonely, abhorrent, evil, joyous, sensitive, artistic, material, immaterial, unfathomable, friendless, loveless, loving .... real, and inevitably, dark, and then to electrifying WHITE light.

Thanks for the memorable moments
I only wished to make you smile once more...
