Love’s Eye

The eye of love
Sees through
The heart, the soul,
The thickness of man’s marrow

The eye of love
Looks across
The failings, the dirt,
The weakness of every fellow

Lend me the eye of love
That I may see the world’s race
As one ray of light
refracted as a rainbow

And so behold the beauty
In such colours of diversity;
For love should be a single eye
Shared by us all.

    Wow! This is a lovely piece. ‘For love should be a single eye, shared by us all’. Now that’s deep. Kudos to the poet, you did great.

    I’m guessing the choice of Yemi as the helper is because Yemi mentioned “deep”. Now Anyibaba wants to reach the depths of love…..and….”stand under” there to review the world. Truth is, he has…he does understand! *just a careless guess*
