M- Your Eyes

Written by: Rick Berry

When I close my eyes
I see hers
Sparkling, alive
Beautiful

I stare
I apologize
I comment
Your eyes are beautiful

When I close my eyes
I see hers
Twinkling, alive
Like a thousand lights

I stare
Then I close my eyes
To remember
To sear the image

When I close my eyes
I see hers
I’m the silent witness
Wanting to express myself

I stare
My heart is screaming
Silently, without defense
Her eyes melt my heart

When I close my eyes
I see hers
And I wonder
Will I see them again?
