In Your Eyes - A Love Poem

You’ve gathered up my love

With the sweep of your eyes

Your lashes touched my soul

While you blinked at me

From across the room

A place, I know I long to go

It feels just like yesterday

When into my life you came

Days fly by so swiftly

As today lies our memories

Dying to be brought to life

To be renewed, and for always

Just snapshots in time

Nights lonesome and still

Closing the door behind me

Yet without a window

Only space for us to breathe

To truly realize, we cannot fail

And with those eyes

So gentle as they sweep

Lashing at my heart

Letting my feelings glide

Wanting back what’s good

You are all, everything to me

A chance to erase the past

Make new memories

Love with all of our being

Getting back what was lost

By knowing we will survive

Because this love, is worth saving

From a male perception,the attraction begins with the courtship of the eyes. It's allurement was it's aloofness...yet the anticipated promise so enticing :)
