Entrancing Eyes - Poem by Lynette Dias Gouveia

I was trodding through a lonely path in my life
A broken heart; A wretched mind

A time when love didn’t exist anymore
A time when love simply walked out the door

And just when I thought I lost it all
I met a man, the most genuine of all

He touched my weary heart with sweetness divine
With compassion and gentleness my fears pushed behind

Humbly I kneel and look up at the skies
Thanking my Lord for sending Entrancing Eyes

For just when I thought love walked out the door
I found in my heart to love once more

My ashen face, now bright and aglow
Entrancing eyes, how can I ever let go

Your gentle smile, so tender, so dear
Entrancing eyes, you have drawn me near

And if the Angel and I, ever have to part
Never forget darling, you are embedded in my heart

And even if tears stream down my wearied face
I will thank the Lord God for all His grace

For when I thought love walked out the door
He poured in my heart a love once more

Entrancing eyes you have captured my heart
Entrancing eyes.. Entrancing eyes..

    Yes, entrancing. I would replace at least one of the 'walked out the door' with 'missed my door' 'past my door' passed my door or similar. Needs a bit of crescendo change.
    Enjoyed it. Is he still there?
