I love the depth in his eyes when he takes me in.
His gaze warms my soul like hot cider
On a cool autumn day.
He knows what it means when I get that far off look
When we are holding hands, going for a drive
And my grip gets just a little tighter
Dancing under the luminescence
His smile radiating
Beaming into my core
Catching his eyes to say, “I love you”
Without saying a word at all.
His hazel eyes tell a story
Turning shades of green and blue
Depending on how the sun strikes them
They breathe me in like a gust of wind
And exhale away all of my worries
When I look in them long enough
Years have past
And he still makes me crazy
When he takes my head in his hands
Throwing back a kiss
And wiping away a tear
‘Cause after all of this time,
You’re my best friend, my dear.
