That Sparkle in your Eyes

By Bruce Clifford

Like any star in the sky
Like any single passerby
Like any reason to try
Like that sparkle in your eyes

Like any moment in time
Like any nickel and dime
Like any reason to cry
Like that sparkle in your eyes

Itís not as if nobodyís paying attention
Itís not as if you donít have anyone who cares
Itís not as if youíve gone through any self reinvention
Itís not as if youíre alone and running scared

Like any heart on your sleeve
Like any world of make believe
Like any lost memory left to retrieve
Like having the will to achieve

Like any star in the sky
Like any single passerby
Like any reason to die
Like that sparkle in your eyes

Like any moment in time
Like any poem and rhyme
Like any reason to define
Like that sparkle in your eyes
