Sonnet 80: The look of love


It is your eyes that show your love for me
Limpid blue pearls that smile with gentle love
That dispel any fear of what might be
And unites our love from heaven above.

They twinkle like stars shining in the night sky
And create a calming and soothing balm
They are gentle and kind not set to pry
That eases my soul making all things calm

Your eyes are the mirror to your kind soul
Which puts one at ease in your presence
They do not burn like some eyes burn a hole
But form a calming and soothing innocence.

There is more truth when we speak with our eyes
Than with our mouths alone which often lies?

    Eyes are the dumb communicators! Eyes can contain an ocean of love, also hold a mountain of bitterness! When eyes reflect innocence and love, everyone turns beautiful! A lovely sonnet! ! (Report) Reply

    Eyes are the reflection of our soul
    Eyes speaks of reality with boldness
    You can wear a mask of smile on face but
    Mask cannot be worn on eyes....
