I see the maps in your eyes-
They lead me across continents of grace…
The lands of your soul, rich in beauty-
Then over mountains of earthborn innocence,
Flowing, uninhibited, like lava,
And then cooling to form the brilliant stones
Defying all glory in explanation,
They soak me in deep, brown love.
I looked up in the stars tonight
And saw you glinting there.
How is it
That someone can be
That there is such a beauty
You leave the door to your heart wide open
And I can just come in
And nestle there.
Your gaze alone
Brings warmth to tired bones.
You’re the kind of person
That I could hug
Never needing more
For the rest of my life.
Oh, I could die a happy man.
