When I look into your eyes


When I look into your eyes
I see the girl I met at school
Sitting together laughing
Making fun of all the boys

When I look into your eyes
Remembering our sleepovers
Talking and laughing all night
Until Mum banged on the wall

When I look into your eyes
I see that girl rushing to me
To tell me of her first kiss
Then I told you of mine

When I look into your eyes
I see your tears of great regret
You liked the boy I did too
But we can't share him can we?

When I look into your eyes
So happy on your wedding day
With you kissing your husband
It is me crying, not you

  2. A lovely memory of a friend now separated from another through marriage. It feels like nothing will ever be the same again,,,but the memories remain.

  3. Heartbreaking, Robin. I can only imagine the pain squeezing the heart of the speaker. Those last few lines make me wish I could hug her.

  4. Oh, this just makes me so sad for the protagonist. It is clear how much she loves her friend. I hope she can find her own happiness someday.

  7. Those old friendships are precious…as are all the feelings that accompany them…happy, sad, or a combination of both.

  9. Love and tears all around. I like the subtlety of naming winner and loser.

    Many a time of sad happenings to those with unrequited love episodes! A valuable lesson in 'experiences of young love'
