Your laughing eyes lift 
my tattered soul 
above the drench of sadness
Your impassioned eyes hold 
my breathless self in loving thrall
Your quiet eyes calm 
my furtive restless spirit
Your loving eyes wrap
my lonely heart in soft embrace
Your flashing eyes guard 
Tomorrow's fearful gate 
Your tearful eyes bring 
my aching heart to its knees
Your knowing eyes
Give answer to unspoken words
Your triumphant eyes speak
Of honored battles bravely won
Your accepting eyes
Hold fast against the dull anguish
Of the unchangeable
Your closed eyes 
are my forever loss.

Oh My! how so very beautiful and truly tragic. Those eyes enthralled us too. Thanks for sharing the beauty of those eyes. Felt it.

The eyes have it. The last one is so sad. Interesting form. I particularly liked "Your impassioned eyes hold my breathless self in loving thrall".
