COMPLEMENT

COMPLEMENT*
 
 
You told me once
That my eyes are the most beautiful you 
Have ever seen
 
I replied:

If true, my love, 
Is only because into them your stunning beauty
Is reflected!

*I am aware that writing this poem I am skating on thin ice,
BUT , wanting to pay back the complement a lady made, I came up 
With this answer for I do not think she is right!

    Thank you, Andrea! Yes, the ladies deserve the best a man can offer for they are beauty incarnated!

    No better response to a compliment than a compliment. You're a man of deep insight and sensitivity, Demetrios. Much as I'm eye-literate I tried to read your eyes and I have to agree with your lady friend: they are beautiful. A host of other adjectives came to mind, which will remain unsaid, but I daresay they might drill a hole right through to a person's soul, albeit gently. Nice poetry, my friend. I like. Licia :-)

    Dear Licia, I think this is our first encounter and I regret that so late it came! Thank you for your visit and your complement that makes me blush and leaves me speechless! If I follow your advice though and answer a complement with a complement then I do not have to look for long since the splendor of your smile can easily add beauty to the eyes of the onlooker!

    WOW! As they say - beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Don't worry - If you are on thin ice and fall, i will give you my hand. You are safe... Lucilla

    What a lovely reaction, dear Russell! Well, I feel awkward and embarrassed but I did not want this to pass without expressing my appreciation to her in a way that would surpass her compliment. She deserves it for she is a unique lady, kind and loving! Thank you!

Thank you, dear Eileen, for your kind complement that certainly I do not deserve, however my answer is already given! God bless you for seeing beauty everywhere!

    I never doubted the sincerity of the person's heart , it is only the fact I deserve such a complement that I doubt! Thank you once more for your kindness!
