The Eyes of Love

Tell me my friend, and speak the truth
When you look at me
From the depths of your soul,
Tell me, what do you see?

Do you see a mortal frame,
Bound upon this earth?
A simple man, a nobody
Nothing special in his worth?

Or do you see this heart of mine
Overflowing with its love
Trying to give unselfishly
And striving to rise above?

For my friend, when I turn my eyes
And catch a glimpse of you,
I see beyond your mortal ties
And I know in my soul the truth.

I see your kind and loving heart
That beats within your chest,
I see the pain that you've been through,
And I know you've passed its test.

I see the good that you have done
For others who were in need
I see the burdens you took on
That knocked you to your knees.

But most of all I see in you
A kind and gentle soul,
For I look through the eyes of love
And 'tis a sight to behold.

Terry Woodson



 ~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~

Terry this is AWESOME...perfect...excellent.. and i like it too (smile)very well written and expressed.
emotionally strong...very good work.
take care jm




 ...when you walked into the room, I saw their faces,
you made it feel like time was standing still...and I felt fascination...
then you turned and smiled in my direction...
and my heart...gave me away.

"For I look through the eyes of love"--it's the only way to really look at someone.  Beautifully written.

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley

"Looking through the eyes of love. . ."

Brings that song to mind very quickly. . . everything always looks better through them. . .

Wonderful words. .

Terry*
This is so well written with so much feeling and style.  We often wonder what others see in us...if it's better or worse than what we see in ourselves...well done!!


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

TerryW~
I think you have looked into the eyes
of love ... and have seen a reflection
of who you are.
This is stunningly open and honest.
