Brown Eyes Have A Hard Time Saying Goodbye - Poem by Carol Fleming Klein

Brown eyes
have a hard time saying goodbye

A light in them continues to shine
Even when all the words
have been said

Brown eyes
Have a hard time saying goodbye.

February 2,1987


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This intriguingly mixed metaphor was my immediate response to the break up of a long standing relationship. I think it evokes the shock I was feeling. And a certain reality of relationship. One can not turn off love in an instant, or banish history. The light that would not go out but lingered.
