Into Your Eyes
by Sarina Aurora Butera
A rush comes.
I picture you close to me.
I'm staring into your eyes.
Thinking I'm so grateful to be with you,
to be right there in your arms.
Hoping that the feeling will never go away.
Knowing what it's like to be without you.
Never wanting to feel that way again.
Feeling complete because you let me love you.
Love you for who you are,
for your smile,
for your laugh,
for your strengths,
accepting your weaknesses.
Staring into your eyes,
the feelings are intense
silence overcomes me.
Expressing my thoughts,
my emotions through a kiss,
a kiss that I hope never ends.
I feel your soul pouring into mine
Wishing I felt that way all the time.
I open my eyes and realize it was just a memory.
I look next to me to see you're not there,
but looking forward to the next time you will be.
Because when you are,
I'll be elated to have those feelings
that rush into me every time I look into your eyes.
