Lost In Your Eyes

A Moment In Love

Lost In Your Eyes

In my eyes lie forever...and you. 

Life can be brutal sometimes. Almost like it's trying to push you as far as it can out into the deep ocean to see how long you can tread water. I don't get it. I don't like it, but then, it sends little buoys out, which you can almost reach, and keep you swimming. This is for one of those little lifesavers, who's beautiful heart shines sunlight through the storms at sea. Love, M.  

I gazed into her deep, blue eyes 
And gravity renounced all ties 
I swear I saw God's true grace there, 
A gift His fondest Angels share 

I left this world on lustrous wing, 
The only sound, a lark did sing 
And into blue, as I did stare, 
I felt as only clutching air 

She must have found my silence queer, 
And queried 'Are you well, my dear?' 
But all my will could not displace, 
The beauty of that magic place 

I'd fallen deep into a dream 
As if the sun had laid a stream 
Where warmth and light ran on the ground, 
And held me tight without a sound 

Her look reflected grave concern, 
Though from it's depth I could not turn 
And 'fore she hung her head to cry, 
A teardrop gathered in my eye

'I am fine, my one last truth, 
But I had fallen to my youth 
When I discovered God above, 
Created everlasting love.'

I really enjoyed this piece.

I'd fallen deep into a dream 
As if the sun had laid a stream 
Where warmth and light ran on the ground, 
And held me tight without a sound 

Great verse  - Syd

Hi Syd! 
Thank you so much! It's an honor, my friend! Things are crazy here at work, due to layoffs, and stuff, but I really appreciate your kindness. If I had more time, I would check out your latest writings, but the world is collapsing here. When it slows down, I will though. 
Thanks again! 
M.

Hi Matthew.  This is beautiful!  I think we all need some saving grace in our lives....to know someone cares when we feel hopeless...that little push and encouragement that things will get better and to just keep swimming.  God is LOVE and He created love, so He will always use it for His glory when we look for His will in it to do so.  We can get so lost in life, Matthew.  I know I have many times....and yet God doesn't give up on me...but allows me more chances...and you have that too.  Stay in that beautiful magical warm place that motivates you to hold on....and allow others to care and be there for you so you do not succumb to darkness. I feel that hope in this write, through eyes that show the window into her soul.  Lovely phrases that inspire.  Great work. xo Love n Hugs, Cheerie ;)

Thanks Cheerie, 
I was inspired by an amazing person who nearly resurrected me from the depths of depression. Life is too hard, and sometimes it takes things too far, but I'm glad there is some beauty(like yourself), while we're here. 
You're wonderful. 
Love, 
Matthew.
