eyes that last i saw in tears

Eyes that last I saw in tears through division here in death’s dream kingdom the golden vision reappears I see the eyes but not the tears this is my affliction. This is my affliction eyes I shall not see again eyes of decision eyes I shall not see unless at the door of death’s other kingdom where, as in this, the eyes outlast a little while a little while outlast the tears and hold us in derision.
