Your eyes

When I look into your eyes, I see a mirror
Somewhat like the Mirror of Erised...your eyes,
your eyes reflect, your heart knows, always,
even before I realize...
what my heart wants,
my deepest desires, aspirations,
my devotion and my passion..
And you nurture all, with love and care
Giving wings to my dreams, a gift rare!
And if I ever doubt myself,
all I have to do is look into your eyes,
and my fluttering heart finds peace,
in your calm, soft, brown eyes.
Reassuring me, inspiring me,
Nudging me gently to go on, to live!




Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi

I show not your face but your heart's desire


Linking this to Poet's United Mid-week Motif ~ Mirror and also joining this week The Real Toads where the theme is 'Eyes'

  4. A love's or a mother's eyes can be ever so much kinder than the Mirror of Erised, but I love the comparison. In the vast love expressed here, I also "see" God.

  12. It is sure that one sees oneself reflected in the generations before and after, superimposed on the experience had or to come, demonstrating the hopes of the past and potential of the future.
