Haunted Eyes

Haunted eyes filled with pain and sorrow starring back at me,

They show deep horror and pain of disbelief.

The sparkle and wonder are no longer there,

They show shadows of sadness and lonely despair.

They hold no hope of tomorrow or even today,

The path to walk on has been taken away.

Like a Solider in a war zone they have saw too much,

It is like the person you are looking at is way out of touch.

How can these eyes awake to face another day?

When everything they once knew has been taken away.

As you look in the mirror you see your haunted eyes,

Your feel your heart breaking as you sit there and cry.
