    An inch away from the chasm...
    A thousand yards away from a light.

    Eyes stare down but the heart looks up
    The nature of a simple plight.

    Reason steps in and the mind is chaos
    "What will happen to us?!"

    Is it the eye?
    The mind?
    The heart?

    I followed my heart once behind the mind
    And it hurt.
    I followed my eye once behind the heart
    And it hurt.
    The mind and the eye often betray
    What is worth?

    I follow the heart, alone...
    Inch towards the chasm.

    Because the mind and eye never saw the light
    That the heart felt.......
    That the horses who broke this heart open
    Knew where the truth dwelt....

    Follow the heart
    And take the step forth...
    That's where love starts
    And I will find all that I'm worth...

    The thousand yards become the inch
    When the truth of the heart beholds
    That no chasm, no distance
    Our love can withhold.

    And leaping that distance
    Simply holding the light
    My eyes and my mind
    Find my hearts delight...

    Your smile.

    To simply see you smile.

    Is the hearts delight.

    Nice job! I can't write sappy love poems, it makes me feel awkward, so I praise those who can do it.

    I may or may not be your lover but I like to reply to poems with poems... And so it is.

    may I just,
    place my hand on your chin, lift your head a little higher
    our eyes will meet, once again
    brave warrior of love
    with a heart on your sleave
    there will always be casualties.
    each time you listen to my sweet soft voice
    the clearer the trust will form
    our mind, eyes and heart will form as one
    as one - we gain our strength
    and sweet babe
    if you only saw through my eyes
    you would see
    your worth
    can not be measured
    it may be tested to only polish the stone
    closer to your precious centre
    to shine your light even brighter

    you are so important to me

    in my dream you gave me a ruby red cloak
    the same as yours
    and took my hand
    I have never felt that safe

    through times hard for us both to understand
    and circumstances unnerving
    I have seen clues of you in my eyes
    wishing and hoping you have seen mine

    a distance in flesh is between us
    but in my heart
    I feel you
    in my dreams
    I see you
    closer and closer
    like Christmas as child
    it feels so far away
    then it will be close
    waiting up on Christmas Eve
    so exited we can not sleep
    and in the morning we can (unwrap) our pressents
