Her deep brown gaze

Her deep brown gaze enthralled me from the start
And then she spoke in soft and laughing tone
The challenge that she gave stood her apart
I wished that I could keep her for my own

She took my gift and gave me so much more
A deep brown gaze that sets my whole on fire
The body and the mind that I adore
A night with her could be my whole desire

When lust and love combine in just one place
And friendship joins the chemistry of life
That deep brown gaze emerges from her face
In dreams she would be who I took as wife

She craves an almost brutal love at night
But I just keep her deep brown gaze in sight
