Your eyes were shining
Your soul was glistening
My heart tentatively listening
Your tender heart wishing
Then came the vacuum of time
Separated and looking for the sign
That love resides
That it can defy
All obstacles upon love
These feelings are above
For all the hell
That has been
All the while
I have seen
Your eyes, their shine doth fade
I dug my own grave
Behind the wall of time
When will I see them shine?
For they were once shining
I am irrefutably pining
It begins again with fine dining
Roses and prose
So as to flow the energy of my love
To see them eyes, shine stronger than the moon above.
The only prize is Love.
The consolation prize is a house that’s not a home
As I seek to atone
I would devote my skin and bone
To see those eyes glistening
And to never be alone
Without the light and sparkle
I would shed my tabernacle
And set my possessions to the sea
So that that shining never fleas
I would give up it all
So as not to fall
From the grace of your glistening soul.
So that I can have and hold those eyes like the constellations
So that you and I can rise in elation
So as to reward your admirable patience
Time ticks and my heart tocks
As I see the countdown on the clock.
Until I see you my one and only rock.
The cornerstone of Love
In the name of all that is above
I will nurture this love
So that shining is no longer the word
So that words of love are once more heard.
So that we can say that they shine again.
Despite the passing of time and the pain.
Beg of thee the spark in your eye.
Will return before I die.
This my own mission.
To revive what all this time I’ve been missing
The shining and the glisten
