With Courage I Want To Look Into Your Eyes (English Sonnet) - Poem by Gert Strydom

In you I have seen some great virtue,
a kind of loving that comes selfless
from the heart, a dedication that is true
a kind of kindness that is ready to bless.

I have loved you, as you are really fair,
not only for your company, great beauty,
for your outward looks and your auburn hair
but for the way that you make it your duty

to spread your kind of sheer light and sunshine
when I am around, to whoever you meet
a real kindness that no one can decline
and here now I lay my soul at your feet,

with courage want to look into your eyes
past all previous days, past all goodbyes.
