Was There an Eye? (Lyric 77)
by Daydred Easton
Was there an eye -in the vacant land
where two hearts lived and died-
that may have noticed the outstretched hand,
left ignored, as he cried?
Was there one -about the garden
where once trod Adam and Eve-
that took sight of a cherub's foot
with a twitch, preparing to leave?
Was there an ear to hear the sound
of the dying love coming 'round?
To listen to the noise
of pain as it destroys?
Was there an eye to catch the miracle
as you re-entered my heart and soul?
To witness the splendor of the day?
To see what remains untold?
