The Eyes of a Friend

April 16, 2008
By Emily King, Joliet, IL

Crystal clear
blue as the ocean
deep as a river.

Bright as the sun
Shiny as a mirror
Luminous as candlelight.

They puncture hearts.
They speak your words for you.
You needn't talk.
I know what you want to say already.

I can't stop smiling.
I feel butterflies
When I look you in the eyes.
