Valentine to my Tayv8tor

In Your Eyes

Love I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass
And this emptiness
Fills my heart
When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

All my instincts, they return
And the grand facade
So soon will burn
Without a noise
Without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes, the light the heat
In your eyes, I am complete
In your eyes, I see the doorway
To a thousand churches
In your eyes, The resolution
of all my fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

Love, I don’t like to see so much pain
So much wasted, and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand facade
So soon will burn
Without a noise
Without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway
To a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all my fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes
In your eyes

After 5+ years, I still feel the light and heat in your eyes. You were the resolution to “all my fruitless searches.” I love you more than I’ll ever be able to express. Wish you were here with me to celebrate “everyone’s favorite commercialized February holiday” with me.

Love,
Nicole
