One Man's Eyes

One day I opened my eyes and saw colors
Beautiful greens and blues and others
They were so light and bright
That at once it gave me a fright
It was not that I had not seen before
The colors the world holds in its store
But that I had not stopped to look
At the many things it took
To make the world a happy place
It is like a fabric of intricate lace
Growing together and yet apart
Awing from the very start
I wish sooner I had seen
The glory that is between
Each leaf and ever wing
Wish I'd listened to the bluebirds sing
Because as I lay in my little bed; unable to arise
I realize now man cannot see what is right before his eyes
For a man can never be at peace, until the day before he dies
