If Eyes Could Speak - Poem by Hafeni Nghidinua

If eyes could speak, they would betray my emotions
My thoughts laid bare and my secrets exposed
If eyes could speak I'd be completely naked
You could look into my eyes and see my every thought

If eyes could speak... What need would there be for words
What words could I not say?
What feelings could I not share? What world could I not save?

If eyes could speak, oh if my eyes could speak
What could I do? What could I not do?
I would talk to you… Finally, talk to you

If my eyes could speak what would I say to you?
What could I not say to you?
The word beautiful, does you no justice
No word can, no word ever could
Look into my eyes and see you, as I see.

I wish we could talk, I would converse with you forever
We would roll our sweetness into a ball, sweeter than any other
I would confide in you and I'd be your haven in return
I could share my being with you and never rejection,
If my eyes could speak….

If my eyes could speak... Then all eyes could be opened
I could save the world, I could quell all hatred
But you are my world, the only thing worth saving
You are the only one worth conversing

Maybe you'd fall in love with me,
& maybe I'd make you happy
My words stumble in my mouth
But maybe in my eyes, just maybe
They could flow like rills in the forest
If eyes could speak…
