WITHIN THE EYES
by Dr. Rick McGrath, Ph.D.
(Modesto, CA )
Deep within the eyes of a child
A future, a life yet to be lived
Memories of today forgotten
Yet there is hope in tomorrow.
Days race forward as years pass
Time moves at incredible speed
Birth to death without second thought
Lines carved deep into each face
Deep within the eyes of the aged
A past life lived, tomorrow unsure
Memories of yesterday forgotten
Yet there is hope beyond the grave.
