Deeper Within Your Eyes!

 Just a note about this Poem…  It is the second of two “Epic” Poems I wrote, about the Vision I had, that lasted a little longer than a Heartbeat, but spand the rest of my Life, the moment I first looked in to the eyes of and made contact with (through the “shaking” of hands) she whom I would later be able to identify as “the Woman of my Dreams”.  Few may believe such things are real, or possible, but I tell you in truth (as I would anyone in person) that such things DO happen, and are possible.  Some people refuse to believe as such, until and/or unless it happens to them.  For me, it has.


Deeper Within Your Eyes



Forever I saw,

within the glimpse of an eye,

a trillion moments shared,

what fool, for it, wouldn’t try?


It took but a moment,

to fall so deeply in Love,

seeing our future, of all we’d share,

from beginning to end, the good,

outweighing and negating the bad,

a Ken & Barbie fairytale made real!

Our Love would start slow,

continue forever to grow,

together overcoming all obstacles,

refusing to succumb to bitterness,

crystal clear in every way!


We start off small, enjoying youth,

Living quick, but taking it slow.

Each moment a moment,

not a “second”, or “wasted time”,

just you, me, and Life as it came.

Gradually we settle down, plan,

decide where we’re putting the yurt,

and save until we get there!

A child comes, the first of three,

a surprise, but one filled with glee!

we adjust, and Life goes on,

Living and Loving as the day

we met, we struggle, get ahead,

Live and grow, feeling Life’s



Then comes success, where we’re at,

no thought of the “could haves”,

and Forever begins to come clear!

We learn Love goes beyond passion,

and share the passion all the more,

Eternity has centered within your eyes!


Beauty with age, more so each day,

you’ve become a woman before my eyes,

words lose meaning trying to describe,

the Love, for which, anything I’d try!

Tomorrow comes too soon, and is today,

patience gets a little sore, but,

we’ve lived together enough to know,

talking, sharing, caring, sees us through!

The hustle & bustle begins, moments,

fall victim to bed times and kids

school events, Anniversaries of birth,

business meetings, never too much,

just enough to make precious moments sweeter!

We learn Love, Loving, and Living,

doing so all the while, Life,

lived as intended, dreams found,

today yesterday, tomorrow today.


Peace on Earth, goodwill to all,

babies numbered 2 & 3 doth call,

we adjust and grow, our yurt in sight,

Life as we’ve made it brings delight!


Our yurt finds a home, we move,

Tomorrows come & go,

memories, made, shared, remembered, Life,

takes on a certain glow!

Kids grow up, parents we’ve become,

Life moves with us, we as One.

Too soon to tell, what our

children will become, Life’s yet lived,

wiser we are now, and Love’s in

full bloom, Forever defined in your eyes!


Seniors they call us, but we know

the trick, it’s not the looks,

but the feeling that’s most,

Life bears more meaning,

now it’s our turn to coast!


All the while our Love’s shown bright!

An example for all, our guiding light!

Sun, Moon, & Stars dim, Love

outshines them all, forever found,

through those beautiful, captivating eyes!


Forever I saw,

in the blink of an eye,

each moment Eternal,

all seen… in your eyes!

I am a Writer and Poet, Construction Worker with a Union, would be Organic Farmer, Son, Brother, Cousin, Friend, and a few others. I would like to add a few more; Husband, father, .... the list will grow! I am currently working on personal growth, publishing my first book, becoming a Journeyman in the Carpenters Union, learning more of Gardening and Green things, and embracing Life as it comes! Life and Love are only as easy as we allow them to be, but are ever present, when we are ready to embrace them! Time is a tricky, devious thing, and Life is never easy. Nor should it be, the challenge is how we grow! While ever developing mentally and Spiritually over the last decade, The "obstacles to progress" are morphing into challenges to be met, and are ever changing. Such is the amazing Wonder that is Life, as we Learn, as we Grow! Too much structure is at the very heart of institutionalization, and not enough is the path to chaos. Learning that balance I believe is a Life-long challenge. One of many, as balance(s) is(are) ever changing too! All the while (and, as we ALL are...), I am, have been, and continue to be, so very Blessed!! Divine Providence, the "Finger of God", or even a reference to "Footprints"; all and more apply! The Energy of Life is all around us! Creating, Energizing, Healing, Invigorating! Life feeds the Energy of Life! Call It/Them how/by/what you will... Their presence and influence in and upon my Life has been amazing, and I could not, and would not, be who or where I am (NONE of us would/could be), without Them! Divine Providence, Creators/Masters of the multi-verse, the Spark of Life, the Energy that Nourishes, Higher Power, whatever/however you so choose to acknowledge our own smallness in the Universe! Without Their Love, Their Guidance, we are lost. We are sick, we are incomplete, when we lack the Faith to Heal and be Whole! I am growing, and Healing, and Learning, and am greatly in need thereof. But I AM growing, and Healing, and Learning! And so the Light "at the end of the tunnel" Shines ever bright! And Day by Day, I struggle, to be better than I was the day before, and to be prepared to be even better tomorrow! Hallelujah! Aloha! Namaste! As-Salàmu Àlaykum! Peace!
