The Eyes Of Love! - Poem by Vonda Overlie

I see you standing there.
My mind goes into autopilot judgement mode.
Unaware of your past. I judge your future.
Forgive me bearded man with the sad, sad eyes.

I am no different from you.
A Life full of hopes and dreams.
Mistakes and falls.
My heart today breaks for you.
the lost dreams and visions that danced in your head when you were a wee child?

They still burn!
Teach me to understand.
I will not hold your hand as you walk this path.
But I will reach down and try to lift you up.
Oh bearded man with the sad, sad eyes. I almost missed you.
For I am looking into the eyes of my father.

    The eyes of love see what others do not see, that's why beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Another lovely poem Vonda. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
