My Eyes Have Seen…

For all that there is in this world to see

It isn’t necessary for even more to be

Our faulty eyes see illusions all day

Our faulty brains say it must be this way


We can’t deny the way that we see

Our brains and eyes say that it must truly be

For we have no other way to experience the day

Our senses are limited in this or that way


But we have our minds which can also see

Through the illusions and mysteries that be

With knowledge and thoughts during the day

We can see what isn’t there in any other way


So expand your mind and see what you see

There is nothing exact that cannot be

Make the most of all of each and every day

Because it is only one time that you’ll come this way
