Your Eyes


Gaze on me only but for a second, and thus I shall know

That in agonizing uselessness are my feelings of woe.

For when your vision crosses mine

I seek no other but the eyes of thine.

It would be foolish of me, you see

To bind myself to misery

By spending my time in a way truly unwise

And allowing my hopes of having you to demise.

For I have never felt a love more true

And seeking joy just leads me to you.

Blessed be this fair connection, 

For what is pure represents perfection!

It only takes a second for me to be

For a lifetime filled with heaven blessed serenity.

I beg of you, my love, please feel the same

Your eyes have shared all with me, but your name
