His Eyes

From the moment I saw the twinkle
In his muddy pools
I knew.
I saw everything I needed,
I can't explain it
But his eyes spoke my language.

I look into his eyes now
And see his pain.
Whilst others believe his smile
I see his suffering from ill health.
Our eyes understand each other.

I long for that delightful twinkle
To return to his troubled eyes,
I pray
For happiness to return to those muddy pools,
I can't explain it
But his eyes speak louder than his voice.

Good Morning Elizabeth. Bless you for recognizing the pain within the eyes and looking beyond any false smile. I found beauty within your heartfelt words. And yes, the eyes speak louder than words. Well done and expressed.

My poor husband battles with illness. He puts on a brave face for everyone but his eyes let him down.

I could feel the sadness within this well written poem Elizabeth, eyes do indicate how we feel, enjoyed, Roy.
