Smoky Eyes



Yes, I write of love

So that impossible dream

Might one day be true

 

Will you hear my voice

And will this relentless climb

Find me in your heart?

 

Listen to loving words

As I look in your smoky

Eyes where my hopes are

 

But I am so scared

Lest you order me away

That risk I must take

 

Enough pressure now

I can tell that you are mine

I’m sure that’s a nod

 

And I fought so hard

It just so happens that you

Wanted me as well

  11. We always hope our love will be returned, but the cynic in me says that's where the next round of troubles begins! ;-)

  13. Falling into the abyss of love starts with that one step. The free fall is exceptionally fulfilling! Always choose to take the plunge! Loving it, O.E.
