About This Poem

Hazel Eyes

I recall the first time 
I looked into his hazel eyes 
bright sparkling and full of fun 
the slow smile followed melting my heart 
in an instant we knew what flowed between us
love at first sight 
who knew this could happen 
the moment that changed our lives

but life pulled the strength from his tall strong body 
giving him the cruel gift of pain 
weakness not common to such a viral young man 
gradually seeping the life from him 
in life’s nasty twist 
breaking him 
hurting him 
hurting us 
when he was taken so young tears flowed 
pain filled our hearts 
the memory will stay 
haunting my mind 
never letting go
hazel eyes are in my soul 

Unforgetable Moment
