Eyes alight

Written by: Mark Norton

 Eyes alight

How far shall stretch our lost regrets?
Here where sanity dwells,
Is it attained by those with wisdom
Or some who rest within;
Until a twilight fades in the brake of day
And darkness no longer shines, 
Then ever waits the soft embrace
In a place where eyes alight

Softly break the morning rays
And gone nights silent breath,
And lost remains our mortal faith
Here in this early light;
Still comes from out of life's emotion
The measure of a day,
Where brilliant shines the essence held 
In this place where eyes alight
