It is only through the eyes
that you may come to realize
how wondrous is the universe.

You may try through rhyme and verse
to describe this infinite beauty
but only in the eyes do you truly
express the magnificence of creation

Only in the eyes can you see imagination.

When-so tightly-eyes are shut
one finds oneself in a sort of rut
trapped in the confusion of life,
pondering how you came to acquire such strife.

Only when the eyes are dead
do you understand the books you never read.

Somo costera bunta marona esa cavo
bien dos maheku evarana mesquiero.
Life is a tidal wave which crashes- heavily
weighing down on you- as you struggle on steadily.

Vasta meheo como la vertuoe.
It is your decision, what you finally do.

But if you could only see
the power hidden deep within,
Oh to taste such glorious splendor,
gliding through your core, gently as a feather.

What beauty to see God in your eyes.
What beauty to see oneself truly.

Cavorna mioar dios sema vierta.

(Poets note- the language in between is something that happens every so often, I have nop idea what it is, but this poem was the first in which I could directly translate the words and understand them immediately.

    You write really well.
    My favourite line is..
