If I Could Get The Look In Your Eyes - Poem by Gert Strydom

If I could get the look in your eyes
out of my heart,
I will know
that you do not love me anymore

I will be able
to look away from your photograph,
I will probably be able to comprehend
the meaning to this life
and that love is not enough
when destiny rips with its claws

but you are only human
and whatever I am wishing for
can change nothing
about how our things are going
and to the course of life

and at night
you are with me
like a drawing
of your paintings
that hang on my walls,
you are bonded to me.
