Bright Young Eyes
Eugene Beckett

She sits alone in crowded place
too each their own is her excuse
she could put a name to every face
But “Oh” she say “What is the use”
When I find such beauty in self abuse.

But once she had such bright young eyes
eyes that masked her doubts and fears
of faraway dreams and tearful goodbyes
bringing her closer to the better years

the years do pass, she plans her getaway
she shoots for the stars and she misses
and so she searches for better days
in midnight wishes and drunken kisses

at night she would wait for sleep, if it came
dreams of a life and a love every night
and each day passed by the same
she lost her resolve to keep up the fight

but all was not lost for dreamers you’ll see,
because somewhere inside she yearns to be free.
and the girl that was lost is about to be found.

then one came her answer to her prayer
a new face at her door
the girl opened and couldn’t help but stare
he had the bright young eyes she had lifetimes before
and he said you don’t have to live like this anymore”

He told her “My dear but what’s the use”
When there is so much to done
In wasting life in self abuse
its true mistakes can never be undone
but there’s much to do and you’ve only just begun

then one came her answer to her prayer
a new face at her door
the girl opened and couldn’t help but stare
he had the bright young eyes she had lifetimes before
and he said you don’t have to live like this anymore”

He told her “My dear but what’s the use”
When there is so much to done
In wasting life in self abuse
its true mistakes can never be undone
but there’s much to do and you’ve only just begun”

And just before he turned to leave,
he said “ there’s no shame in second chances my dear
forgiveness you shall receive,
your scars and mistakes will disappear,
all you have to do is believe.

the woman opens her eyes and wipes away a tear,
and see’s the wide bright eyes of a small child.
she's whispers a prayer thats most sincere,
finally she closes her eyes and smiles,
and so you see her purpose was clear.
