    I can’t take my eyes off of you
    Even when my eyes are closed
    In the dark of night my vision is
    Clearly centered on your smile;

    I can’t keep my thoughts off you
    Even when my day becomes too
    Much for one to handle I can smile
    At the thought of the love you own;

    I can’t keep my words off you
    Even when I speak of life’s lessons
    The conversation will turn in the
    Direction of your divine silouhette;

    I can’t keep my heart off of you
    Even when I thought I could never
    Love again you ventured into my
    World and unlocked loves’ chains;

    I can’t keep my ME off of you
    For when you entered my world
    You gathered the stones of pain
    And threw them into forgetfulness;

    It is you that has clouded my sight
    And covered my heart in your loves
    Embrace which leave me helpless
    To the ever constant fall in love…

    With you.

    D...

    the beauty and sincerity of love in this peace absolutely warms my heart and spirit...where doubt resided...there lives hope and faith of a love I dream of.

    Thank you for this...
