Eyes

I met a man with dim lit eyes
His world was dark and cold
Around him and within him
Were devastations yet untold
I met a girl with eyes aglow
Who skipped where ‘ere she went
Her life had been protected
Her spirit yet unbent 
I met a friend with soulful eyes
Who took my troubles as his own
In turn he gave his light to me
New seeds of hope were sown
The eyes of those around us
Are the pathways God provides 
If we’ll journey deep within them
We’ll have life and more beside 
Eye to eye we’ll make our way
To truth and love divine
But avert our gaze and look away
And life anew we’ll never find
