Decide In The Eyes - Poem by Alexander Harford

I don't know about this, I'm not so sure
Then I look into your eyes, everything is pure
The Victoria Falls, forest of Nepal
Mount Everest, the San Francisco Shore

I’ve climbed a mountain to reach the top
I’m not going to fall, like a waterfall drop
Hope is important, it keeps us on track
Once I’ve seen I shouldn’t look back

I don't know about this, I'm not so sure
Then I look into your eyes, everything is pure

Perfect white snow on Christmas Day
A shiny new car, and you don’t have to pay
Natural springwater, perfectly clear
Nothing sinister has ever been near

I don't know about this, I'm not so sure
Then I look into your eyes, everything is pure

Soon we’ll be gone, we’ll be taken away
At least though together, we’re here to stay
Decide in the eyes, it worked for me
Open your own, then maybe you’ll see.

(August 2002)
