Brown Eyes

I suspect His eyes are brown,
The eyes that look with love,
The eyes that watch down over me
From heaven up above.

Those eyes of brown that watch my steps
And guide me on my way,
That keep my feet from stumbling
As I walk through my day.

The eyes that see my future,
Will always intercede,
God hears and answers every prayer
And sees my every need.

Perhaps brown eyes see all the grief,
The sadness and the loss,
The way we treat the starving,
The homeless and the lost...

The callous way that we ignore
The children in the street,
The hungry and the hopeless--
No shoes upon cold feet.

And I suspect those same brown eyes
See freedoms roll away,
Our country at a crossroads
If we don't kneel and pray.

And do I see a tiny tear
Escape from one sad eye?
“This is why I chose to come,
To come, to bleed, to die.”

Very well done! The old song, "Don't it make my brown eyes blue" comes to mind.

I knew I had a question and had to go back and re-read. Why only one sad eye? Yes, it rhymes better with die but this world probably has both eyes crying.

very creative. Moving. Loved it.

The ending was kind of abrupt, needs some polishing but otherwise not bad.

This just seems like it comes straight from the heart. It's clear and quite expressive; I enjoyed it.

Nicely done...I can see those precious brown eyes crying for His children.
