Only In Your Eyes


Only In Your Eyes

Drink to me only in your eyes
and I will pledge with mine another
time on the line of your lies

You're more than an image of the night
you are more than a hunted dream
you are my superstition that makes
my soul scream

Perhaps not having you next to me
Makes my heart think what life
could be with out the pain and shames
but that is only a dream
loneliness is what you bring to me

Your coldness comes rushing at my feet
Being with you makes my night
Sleeplessness and very cold

My life has been awaiting for you
Your footfall is my own heart beat
I know I cannot fix the pains of the hour
the words and the lies,
which laid the foundation of us being apart.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
