my wife :)

last night you asked me what shade of blue your eyes are
“not too dark,” i said, “but not too light.”
they’re just right

you see, your eyes are the color of the sky midday
clouds drifting through
all white and blue and no gray

your eyes are the color of love
if love had a color
they’re the color of patience
of kindness
of genuine kindness and patience and love

your eyes are the color i suspect Heaven is
i hope
maybe one day we’ll be there together
and i’ll look from your eyes to our surroundings and think everything is
just
right
