Empty Eyes

They say the eyes are the window of the soul

And as I sat across from him all I could see was emptiness

There was no sparkle of life, only emptiness of being lost

Tear stained eyes, with a permanent strain from the bottle

What could change his eyes I wondered,

Then I remembered a time when I could not see

A time when that was me,

And I received my sight by Jesus

I was blind and empty

Just like my father

And asked His son to take my life

And Holy Spirit to take my will.

And my eyes, He did fill.
