They Saw Their Future (poem)

Updated on June 26, 2016

Her eyes were more like mirrors to my soul

Which spoke of things so very hard to share

So much in common held within a stare

Did we possess the love to fill this hole


Yet somehow our tomorrow’s bloom from there

Where past and future struggle for control

While arms of patient hearts try to console

And kisses gently soften any flare


And when her eyes turned to the sky

We saw a life which others dream about


We were the stars of other lover’s eye

We were the reason that the sun came out


Yet still she gazed my soul would not reply

Till tears of sorrow washed away all doubt
