Point of View

February 8, 2008
You stare at me with those eyes,
What do you see?
What do you feel?

There’s much to life;
To miss, by one blink.
So how do we cherish,
All that we miss
All that we see.

With eyes that can see,
With love that burns bright.
I see all.
Even when my eyes refuse
All that is right.

So darling,
Eyes are unneeded,
To truly grasp the beauty
Of the love we share.
My heart smolders red,
How can I be untrue?

I love you,
Is too miniscule
To truly express
My point of view.

So darling just stay,
For a short time
So I can show you
My point of view.

My love is unfathomable,
Heaven swears its validity.
So immersed that eyes,
Cant see its certainty.

But if you close your eyes,
And trust in me
Darling you’ll feel
My heart is true.

So when your eyes
Draw blanks
When all you can see
Is an blur of a face

Reach out and touch me
For eyes cannot see
The truth and the love
I hold for thee.
