I Have Seen the Light

I have seen the streetlights,

dim but blatant against the Night,

illuminated

to her depth

to her character

and all the life

behind her blind eyes.

I have seen the stars,

rebelliously far from Home,

illuminated

to my weakness

to my significance

and all the eyes

to whom they belong.

But I have seen your eyes too

my dear

my timeless

speechless beauty

I have seen your eyes

and I remain

unmoved.
