In Your Own Eyes



Waiting to hear your footsteps reaching to me
With dreams of all types were seen playing in me
When senses within me were seen fully awake
And were breaking their own limits while waiting

In the dreams I had while waiting for your return
My face got softened with the kisses you gave
While I was seeing you standing infront in silence
While dreams and your wishes were glaring in eyes

In the cool breeze that came in with your images
I could also sense your captivating sweet fragrance
While I still waited to see you come soon and near
Not knowing what to say when you shall be near.

In my thoughts you were seen with joy filled smiles
My eyes could also see the happiness in your eyes
While I was searching how you were feeling inside
I saw you were in high zeniths and dreaming wide.

In my dreams I was forced to wake up and to see
My dear was near to me and with wide joyful eyes
While searching reasons for the glare in your eyes
Reply was “me” and which I saw in your own eyes.
