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!
