Violet in her Eyes

- girlies like this

In meadow sweet the summer’s sun
Falls gold upon my chosen one
A girl whose voice is soft, who sighs
with violet in her eyes.

Our life proceeds at tick-tock pace
We face the hurdles of the race
Bound close with gentle, loving ties
and violet in her eyes

We sit together. Evening light
Fades slowly into dusky night
Her gaze entraps me, calm and wise,
with violet in her eyes.

And as I face the final leap,
The promises that we will keep,
I’ll see again, with wild surmise,
the violet in her eyes.
