Laughing Eyes

Eyes have a language of their own
They tell a different tale
Yours speak a different dialect
As you smile, grave and frail
I want to know what they say
I want to hear them talk
But words are not the same for eyes
They rather walk than talk
They prefer the silent gestures
As revelations from the heart
Revealed in quick glances
A flicker of the light
That show the heat of passion
Empathy that reaches stone
Love that stretches out cold hands
While your feet carry me home.

Observations of a Broken Heart

I’ve never loved like you before
Never put up some many walls
I see the wisdom in the action
Know the pain you’ll never feel
Because you’re using caution
And time has become your friend

I’ve never loved like you before
With your smiles and your glances
Your hidden words with double meaning
Your quiet, shy romances
You don’t confess until you know
And time must play his part

I’ve never loved like you before
With trust and friendship deep
A relationship before the lust
A bond stronger than the beat
Beat, Beat, Beat of my blood
Coursing through my veins

I’ve never loved like you before
I’ve watched. I see. I know.
That there is something special there
You’re more different than you know.
I want to hold you in my arms,
To love and not let go,

But you love like no other before
So I must wait and grow
Becoming friends with time myself
I’ll learn how I must wait
Time will show me what it means to love
For a love that won’t abate
