'Your Eyes'

For Hollis


You ask why I stare; 

The closer I look, the more I swell with admiration

I am but a stargazer, gazing at the stars,

My heart is set on fire by your constellation


Entranced in love; entangled in time; 

The world passes by at its own quick pace.

Just a second would fulfill my longing,

I tilt my head and get lost in your space


How can the vast expanse of beauty 

Be confined to the skies?

For I find beauty set free,

When I look in your eyes.
