Through Her Eyes

I gaze at her and smile, wander reflects through her eyes as she blinks curiously,  she whimpers as I hold her close

I chase after her, her eyes widen as she blinks cheerfully, she giggles as I hold her close

I grasp her hand, her eyes shrink as she blinks rapidly, she slams the door shut and her tears flow as I hold her close

I exhale depressedly, her eyes scan the dorm as she blinks nervously, she unpacks as I hold her close 

I applaud vigorously, her eyes twinkle as she blinks excitingly, she displays her degree as I hold her close

I nod firmly, her eyes follow me as she blinks attentively, she fixes her collar as I hold her close

I smile faintly, love sparkles through her eyes as she hardly blinks, the wedding bells ache through my heart as I let her go

I listen sympathetically, her eyes deepen as she blinks sheepishly, she pours her heart out as she holds me close

I hold back tears, her eyes twitch as she blinks restlessly, she breathes heavily as she holds me close

I caress her newborn, her eyes relax as she blinks contently,  my tears flow as she holds me close

I listen carefully, her eyes scrutinize as she blinks anxiously, I give advice as she holds me close

I close my weary eyes, her eyes water as she blinks with humility, memories slowly but surely fade as I finally let her go

I watch her from above, the starlit sky shines through her eyes as she blinks tearfully, she smiles as she hasn’t let me go
