That Look in Your Eyes

When you look at me the way you do
the beauty and magic of your eyes spills
all over me.

I still my breath, my lips learn to smile again,
I see recognize the flowers, and their beauty
cloaks me with love.

When you look at me the way you do,
I begin to hope, again! I grasp desire
from inside my heart, again.

You look at me like that, and I feel
you becoming part of my heartbeat again
please, don’t tease me again!

My thoughts and emotions had withered
you with the beguiling magic of your eyes
don’t let me long and hope, yet again!Β©

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.
