For Evelyn - Poem by Linda Ori

The eyes are windows to the soul,
Or so the poets say,
And I believe the eyes reflect
The truths our hearts convey,
They speak of love and gratitude,
Of wisdon, joy and caring,
Of hopes and dreams and happiness
And tender thoughts worth sharing;

Evelyn had the eyes of truth
So crystal blue and clear,
The sparkling eyes of happiness,
Of friendship sweet and dear,
The angel eyes of wisdom,
The caring eyes of love,
The light of understanding
Sent from somewhere up above;

She'll always be remembered
By those whose lives she touched,
She left behind a legacy
For those she loved so much,
If eyes be windows to the soul
Then this is surely true -
She brought a glimpse of heaven
To each person than she knew.

    You truly have a gift for poetry that stirs the emotions of love, friendship and their loss. Fluid memorable phrasing allied to very moving language and sentiments. A classic of its kind. x jim (Report) Reply
