EYES GENTLY CLOSED

With deep blue eyes gently closed
We soul to soul caress.
Mine now within your soul enclosed,
My heart beats in your chest.

And if two were ever one,
bound eternally are our hearts.
And now in my inner world
A new life peacefully starts.

Wispy strands of auburn hair
Spread softly upon my skin
Naught in heaven can compare
To the ecstasy within.

A mournful sob inside me breaks,
Cried for those who cannot love,
Who will never know the raptures
Given a couple, from above.

For His creation is one of beauty
Devotion opens wide the door.
And as my eyes silently open,
Our worlds unite forevermore.
