Weather you walk your path in total darkness or blazing light you are equally blind. But blend the two into balanced portions and your path becomes much clearer.

Eyes of the past - Eyes of the future

I look deep within your eyes

And I see the vastness of time stretching eternally into the past

I am overwhelmed

I am awed

I am humbled

Your gaze pierces the deepest recesses of my being

I feel the weight of all that has come before me

I feel all the joys of everything that has come before me

I feel all the sacrifices of everything that has come before me

I feel the heavy weight of responsibility

You look deep within my eyes

And you see the vastness of time stretching eternally into the future

You are sad

You are hopeful

You are humbled

My gaze pierces the deepest recesses of your being

You feel the weight of all that will come after you

You wonder if you have done enough

You wonder if the foundation you have built is firm enough

You feel a quiet hope and joy

You feel the lightening of the spirit that comes with death

We look deep into each others eyes

And we are the same
