Author's Notes:
Written for the LJ community InuSongfics. Prompt: Eye
In the twilight glow I see her
Blue eyes crying in the rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we'd never meet again


How he hated when the memories started. He hated remembering how close he had come to losing her repeatedly. How her blue eyes would sparkle with unshed tears because he couldn’t get out of the way of his own stupidity. How his own brash ways and name-calling would cause her tears. How his confusion over Kikyo made her feel like she was less than Kikyo in his eyes. And yet she loved him. He couldn’t understand it. He who was so impure was loved by one such as her.

He remembered taking her back after the well had reappeared. Holding he close as tears fell from her beautiful blue eyes, he had ghosted a kiss across her face. Leaving her with those who loved her and would never hurt her. His heart breaking, he left her. She never knew how he felt. He never told her how much he loved her. After all he had put her through, he didn’t have the right to hold on to her.


Love is like a dying ember
And only memories remain
And through the ages I'll remember
Blue eyes crying in the rain


But he couldn’t forget her or how it felt to have her beside him. Memories caused him pain but it didn’t diminish his love for her or his hope that she was happy. He missed her smile and needed to feel her love but every time he thought of all the tears she had shed because of him he knew she was better off.

Someday when we meet up yonder
We'll stroll hand in hand again
In the land that knows no parting
Blue eyes crying in the rain


In the deepest corner of his heart he hoped. Hoped she would find her way back to him. But If he had to wait until the afterlife to see her again he would. Knowing he didn’t deserve her didn’t stop the hope.

And she came back. To him. Blue eyes once again sparkling with unshed tears. Happy tears this time. She was happy to be back with him. Was there ever one like Kagome? All the hurt washed away. She loved him with a devotion that astounded him. And he loved her with a fierceness that astonished those around them. But not him. He has a second chance and he vowed she would never wonder about his feelings. He would never see her blue eyes crying in the rain again.
