I remember it so clearly,
That fateful day in May.
A brief glimpse of the exact opposite
Of what has come to pass.
Your blue-green eyes, they sparkled.
Even though they were rimmed with grey.
They aren’t the ocean.
And definitely not the sky.
They show the dark side of you
Just outside of the light I love so much.
I never told you that.
I guess I was ashamed,
Of paying too much attention.
I fell in love with those eyes.
And your smile.
I can't forget all the other quirks about you,
That I can no longer enjoy.
