In Her Eyes

In her eyes I see the tears
Sparkling like the finest crystal
In her heart I hear the cry
a wail of pain and suffering

On her face she tries to keep a smile
to hide the hurt she feels
but in her heart she knows
That it is only as mask

I long to reach out to her
and hold her in my arms
To simply wipe away the tears
and the pain they hold inside

To reach down into her soul
and find that spark of hope
To kindle it like a cherished flame
Till it becomes strong again.

To comfort her in her sadness
and bring a ray of hope
so that once again those eyes might shine
and she might fill the world with joy.
