My mind a light blur, like a daydreaming gaze.
Our eyes matching up while I’m in your gaze.

You have taken up my days.
Dark brown eyes at the start of your gaze.

Don’t go away, I want you to stay.
Tell me I’m the only one who has your gaze.

I am deeply falling for all of your ways.
Eyesight of the beholder carefully picks this gaze.

No, this is not shallow nor a phase.
A magnificent flower blooming within the gaze. 

The experience is a fresh bouquet, except it will never decay.
This is because my love and longing is all in your gaze.
