Your Eyes


Your Eyes
Your eyes were calm and silent pools,
They looked so inviting yet they did not welcome me,
When the sparkle was there we danced in the light of the moon,
When the sparkle was there we could laugh until noon,
When I first saw those eyes, I was shy and afraid,
And when my courage was strong, in those pools I strayed,
Like a whirlpool you pulled me into the deepest of depths,
And though a swimmer, I did not have the strength to fight,
I came willingly, loving every moment, freely giving of my heart,
Never knowing, never guessing, that in a short while we would part,
Your eyes held promise and life but I was not invited to stay,
There was nothing for me tomorrow and certainly nothing today,
Your heart had spoken, your eyes were searching for another,
And I was left with no place to go, there was no other,
Your eyes had lost their power over me,
And I was free to pursue my destiny,
In my dreams your eyes still sparkle and shine,
And I’m afraid I will remember you for all time,
And wish it could have gone on forever,
I still remember how your eyes were calm and silent pools,
But I no longer wish to be in the ranks of fools.
