Lover’s Eyes

Oh the lover’s eyes
that take me in
and see a secret self,
unseen until this moment.
A fleeting moment,
caught between the dust motes,
…for our hearts connect
across the room.

I remember seeing for the first time, the man who became my husband.  We saw each other across a room full of people.  Now, 40 years later, we sit in recliners across the room from each other and occasionally I will look up and find him looking at me.


About Mary Herbert

I am a gentle listener, a woman of few words. My journey through life has been a spiritual one, as well as a physical one. My daughter, Katie, and I thought it would be interesting to combine some of our giftings/talents in a blog and see what happens. Let us know what you think!

  1. Precious beyond words. I love the memories this conjures in my thoughts… loves first glimpse and knowing we are still loved after 40 years.
