I‘ve been gazing in your eyes recently,
they're such deep pools of love and mystery.
As I look deeper into your sparkling eyes
I see back to the past and remember my surprise.
When I first saw the girl who smote the heart of me
and I said goodbye to my friends and hello to Dorothy.
You awoke in me such a burning passion
changing so completely my life’s direction.
As my eyes met yours sweet love was stirred.
Who was this beautiful girl that I so admired?
To know you more was my one great desire
and I started a journey so wonderful and bizarre.
… A lifetime of great adventure.
I see the woman grown from that girl of my dream,
a soul mate of such beauty with eyes that gleam.
I see the mother of our three girls standing there,
a woman so full of love who has lived a life of care.
From those eyes there shines a special sparkle,
of mischief and desire in someone so remarkable.
They make my heart rejoice and praise the Lord;
eyes full of love and affection that comes from God.
Like gateways into your mind they allow me in
to a world in which the beauty of Christ is seen.
The greatest love of my life you will always be.
for I’m blessed to gaze into those deep pools of mystery.
… The girl of my great adventure
