Your Eyes

| Filed under

Contributor: Adreyo Sen

Last night, I dreamt that the world had your eyes
and thus wherever I went,
I lived in their beautiful mystery,
shaded by the absolution of your smile.

Today, when I woke
to myself and the quiet indifference
of those who pass me by
in the grey corridors in which I live,
I thought I would cry.

But I knew I'd rather have
all to myself
the loving loveliness of your eyes.
Your eyes always were mine.
And seeing the world with your eyes,
I knew to delight.
