The Pain Hidden In Her Eyes

Pain Hidden In Her Eyes

I look into the eyes 
Of the most beautiful person in the world
I see life, love and a giving spirit
I can also see a shadow so dark
And pain so deep no words can ever fully describe
Wounds that time may never truly heal
I wish I had the words to banish the shadows
Ease the pain and the ability 
To heal her wounded soul
In those eyes that always bring joy to my life
I wish I could wipe her tears away and
Make her forget all the bad memories
Just wipe them away like footprints in the sand
After high tide has come and gone
I know; however, that I am no god
No omnipotent being with the power
To change the past 
So I pray every day that I can
In some way bring just a little joy
Into her life
Ease some of her pain and to let her know
That there is still a rock to hang on to
A safe harbor in case of a storm
And; yes, someone who does truly care
Without reservations or demands 
Who loves her and would be totally lost
Without her in this otherwise empty life.
