Our Eyes

Our eyes   (written in the style of spoken word)

My child hood is slipping away from me 
my memories fading in light of new.
Parts of me still lost in loam
searching for your face in fading grey.
     All I have left of you is me.

All I have left of your words
are imprinted in my soul 
so that when despair at our seperation
becomes to great
I can hold, caress, and run them through my mind
like the silk of the blanket you wrapped me in
and put around my shoulders 
to look in the water
and find your eyes
and see you
in mine

    smile!? -- another melancholy muse my dear brushed in the brilliance of ones Soulful depthful hues although once more, there seems to be such a temporal view amid your visions I would somewhat believe given these glimpses through your beauties written verse -- hopefully your precious heart shall find the rainbow of brighter promise at the end of this mirages moment of time -- love, Always, christopher ~
