Your Eyes

Staring deep into your eyes, a story unfolds
The hidden side of you, untold
Your deepest secrets revealed
Laid out for all to see
She’s no better than you or me
All the time spent covering your past
You should have known they wouldn’t last

Staring deep into your eyes, your soul it speaks
Dreams of the future, things you seek
Goals for life striving to be met
Before you know, your life is set
People you see day to day
Never knowing you’ve lost your way

Staring deep into your eyes, I feel so complete
The other side of me, knowing in a heartbeat
Everything I ever needed I found so suddenly in you
My thoughts of you were so few
Now seeming so many in a day
Not knowing how exactly to convey
All the long thought thoughts and feelings
All the tears and tugs of my heartstrings

Staring deep into your eyes, I know you are special
In every thing you do, coming across so respectful
Keeping your cool in the hardest of times
You seem so close to all the sublimes
Bringing out the best in everyone you meet
Though tired and weary still upbeat
Never lagging or drawing away
Only good deeds will you display

Staring deep into your eyes, all these things revealed
If I hadn’t taken the time, still would be concealed
Never to be found by anyone
Sitting and waiting to be won
By he who might take the time
To sit and stare deep into your eyes
