In Your Eyes

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Your eyes are the pathway to my soul,

and within you I see myself,

a reflection of my hopes, my dreams,

brought to me within the arms of love.


You presence to me is serenity,

the knowing that I am here,

that I exist and I am whole

within the silence of dreams.


The world outside settles like dust on a plain,

the winds of ill-content ceased, removed.

All is quiet in the veil of love,

all hurt impassive, all pain transformed,

to the sublime knowledge of acceptance.


Your eyes, so deep and dark,

like endless pools of emotion,

draw me to your side,

to inhale you and once quenched,

meld into the quiet, soft folds of you.


Near is all I want to be,

for it is you who gives me hope,

your love my panacea,

my exhalation of all refuse

and the centre of my future,

all in the depth of your loving eyes.


Not lost but found,

within you.
