Gift of Sight
The freckles across her unknown face
Were like stars kissing her cheeks
And I was envious of them.
The scars across her tired legs
Like a map showing me each place
Her mind has ever been.
Her weary chest a living urn
Holding ashes of which I have learned
Are from her love now dead.
The smile sweet upon her lips
Fake as the words on an actors script
But few will ever know that truth.
The liquid drowning her bright eyes
'Ever ignored like time passing by
Now finally I can see her.
