What do your eyes remember? / Poem by Sunita Paul

What do your eyes remember?
 
My eyes remember
My mother’s kiss on my forehead so sweet and deep
Every night when I used to go to sleep
My eyes remember
My father’s tensed face
When I used to compete in any race
My eyes remember
When my husband set his eyes on me
A silent promise to let me what I wannabe
My eyes remember
My kids’ growing years
With hopes, anticipation and fears
My eyes remember
Each pains and fears
How I smiled and hid my flowing tears
My eyes remember
The backstabbing of my hypocrite relatives and friends
Some twist and turns on every end
My eyes remember
Each time how I failed and again tried
How badly I survived when deep inside I died
My eyes still remember
The betrayal and the lies
How each time I was fooled with open eyes
My eyes remember
Each and everything
How life has taught me hard to live as a human being
