how they shimmered and sparkled
what happened? what changed?
what made you walk away? fear anger shame?
why did the light in your eyes fade and die
how I wish I could look into your eyes to see the answers
but I'm too afraid, to hurt, to see the reasons your feelings died
so I close my dark brown eyes in grief
grief that you will never talk
grief for the love I lost
grief that I have to leave you behind
so I say goodbye to you, the boy with the electric blue eyes
