Eyes are the window into the mind and soul 
This I have been told
But look into the eyes of senility; 
See the void of empty space; Feel the cold

    This is so true...I'm a caregiver for my dad and that look does seem cold and lifeless. I'm forever asking....Are you there?? He's in and out of this state. You captured the look well.
