The Eyes Have It
Awakened at dawn, by the slightest of sound.
Nothing to hear but the rain
Dripping from eaves in a rhythm, somehow
One drop at a time, to the ground
I turn on my side, where the light from the sun
spreads gold to your brow, then moves on…
You sleep undisturbed, far away in a dream and I want to dive into the stream
Into turbulent seas, into ardent blue skies, or moonbeams that color your eyes.
Sealed deeply inside, is there something that hides
What is it you see, with your slumbering eyes?
Are there paintings of shorelines, is there someone adoring?
I lie now and wait, as the dark fades away, seeking your eyes in the dawn
A flutter of lash, a dash of a smile,…I must wait for the day to arrive
Then you open your eyes, with a light that I've seen
that is filled bright with gold, just for me
Nothing is heard but the drops of the rain
One pearl at a time, from the eaves, like a chain
You were gone for awhile…….I was lost in a dream
Now I'm lost in the smile of your eyes
There is nothing but gold in the dawn
