Eyes that last I saw in Tears

My version of the famous poem "Eyes that last I saw in tears" by Thomas Stearns Eliot

Eyes that last I saw in tears
are now in joy- smiling bright.
Those very eyes that has lost their gleam,
now seem so full of light.

I think I should be happy-
for, those eyes have learnt to live again.
But then, I cannot feel the happiness
All I feel is an excruciating pain.

A flash of emotions crosses my face.
Why can't I be happy for those eyes?
They were sad when I left.
...Is my absence where their happiness lies?
