In Jennifer's Eyes by Andrew J. Müller

In Jennifer’s eyes
I see a thousand starling’s wings
Glinting in the morning sunrise
I see a darkness, deep and warm
Pulling me in
Keeping me from harm
I see a safe harbour from the storm
In Jennifer’s eyes.

In Jennifer’s eyes
Are all the patterns of life
Black on black and tinged with light
The answers to all the questions
I keep asking
As I lay awake at night
I see the way ahead and the way back
In Jennifer’s eyes.

In Jennifer’s eyes
There is a barmy summer night
A day in the forest away from fright
Breathing in the scent of pine
A walk by the sea
All those things we do
To make life a pleasure to endure
In Jennifer’s eyes.

In Jennifer’s eyes
It is always a silent sunrise
Shadows play across a morning sky
Imparts a warmth I never knew
And need to know
If only they looked at me
The way I look into them
In Jennifer’s eyes.

In Jennifer’s eyes
I could get lost for days
And not care where I wandered
I see all I want reflected back to me
When I look there
In the dark and lovely depths
I can see all there is to see
In Jennifer’s eyes.

This poem appears alongside many others by Andrew in BeWrite Books's "Shaken and Stirred: Poetry from the Far Corners" published in 2002.
