The Boy With Cornfower-Blue Eyes

that day long ago I first saw you
still shines brightly in my mind

you tall handsome and shy
oh, with those cornflower-blue eyes

you, so soft spoken and loving
those eyes , I could drown in them

your beautiful voice so lyrical
melted my heart and filled me with awe

I would travel back in time
to change all that went wrong.

just to have you, love you ,to make you mine
and give you babies with cornflower-blue eyes

It's amazing how one thing like eye color can stay with us so long and can bring back so many memories and regrets.

Thank you both for reading my poem. Yes it is a sad longing for something I had once but can never have again.
And, yes his eyes were cornflower blue. A blue to get lost in.
