They say eyes are the window to the Soul,

but they were all wrong when it came to you.


I do see your Soul in your smiling eyes

(and also when they are crying or crinkling from thinking),

but it’s not just in your eyes that I see It.


I saw It jumping for joy the first time you came up to me, 

I see It peeking out in your nervous laugh,

I see It twinkling when you dance

(by the way, I saw that),

I see It vibrating when you play your imaginary drums.


Your Soul is too large and fluid to be contained in so puny a vessel as your eyes

(no offense to your eyes).
