The night has a thousand eyes,
And the day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying of the sun.
The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done.
— Francis William Bourdillon
You know, sometimes it would have worked if it happened 2 years in the future. In the right circumstances, the right mood, the right timing, it could have been.
Maybe in some alternate universe, everything can be whole again, and we can find happiness in each other’s eyes.
