your eyes

It was your eyes that first moved me
How they didn't turn away 
Looking deep into my soul 
Seeing what I wasn't yet ready to say

Your gaze deepened
As we made small talk
People passed
Yet I only saw you

Each time we move by one another there is a pause
For a brief moment
To say hello
Not with words, but with our gaze

There is something intense about not speaking
Yet knowing exactly what the other is saying
Its a feeling, a spark
A moment in time

It was your eyes that first moved me
I am still transfixed on them
As we navigate this uneven terrain
Your eyes inviting me in to stay just a little bit longer
