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