Every poet has his own muse, his poetic inspiration, and these are 7 best poems about her eyes.

1. The Ocean Of Your Eyes by William H. Bloom

You make me want to sail in the ocean of your eyes.
The winds will carry me, I know not where,
To harbors unknown, and I fully realize
That dangerous storms could be lurking there.
Will the deep blue waters stay pure and serene
On our path to paradise, earthly or above,
Where our joys and passions and moments supreme
Come steadily together to maintain our love.
Will our life’s sustained and rapturous note
Ever remind us to those very fateful skies,

On the day that launched my fragile boat
In that everlasting twinkle, the ocean of your eyes?

2. Beautiful Blue Eyes by Grace Hays

Blue eyes so full of life
A wonder all of their own
So beautiful and precious
Oh to see those eyes smile
Such a beautiful sight
How I love to look into those eyes
When I look into them
A kind of peace comes over me
Beautiful blue eyes
Always haunting me

…teasing me
Reminding me of what I want…can’t have
Why do they haunt me so
When will I be free of them
Constantly held captive by those blue eyes
Beautiful blue eyes
Always there
A reminder of what I want…can’t have
Such beautiful blue eyes
Beautiful blue eyes…

3. My Eyes Say I Love You, Your Eyes Say Forever by Ray Hansell

My eyes say I love you
Your eyes say forever
Could this love we share
Just keep getting better?

I love you with all my heart
You’re all I think about
The love I feel inside for you
I wish could just flow out

I wish the world could see
What lives between you and me
I wish the world could see
That you make me happy as can be

Just spending time and talking
Being by your side
I know that life with you
Would be a wonderful and joyous ride

No two days would be the same
I know that for sure
But more then that I know
Our love would be secure

With you I have no doubt
What it is I feel
I know the love we share
Is a love so very real

Yes, I know this well
I can tell by the signs
That I always get from you
That let’s me know you’re mine

My eyes say I love you
Your eyes say forever
I know one thing for sure
I will leave you never

4. Brown Eyes by Mathilde Blind

Oh, brown Eyes with long black lashes,
Young brown Eyes,
Depths of night from which there flashes
Lightning as of summer skies,
Beautiful brown Eyes!

In your veiled mysterious splendour
Passion lies
Sleeping, but with sudden tender
Dreams that fill with vague surmise

Beautiful brown Eyes.

All my soul, with yearning shaken,
Asks in sighs–
Who will see your heart awaken,
Love’s divine sunrise
In those young brown Eyes?

5. The Lust Of The Eyes by Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal

I care not for my Lady’s soul
Though I worship before her smile;
I care not where be my Lady’s goal
When her beauty shall lose its wile.

Low sit I down at my Lady’s feet
Gazing through her wild eyes
Smiling to think how my love will fleet
When their starlike beauty dies.

I care not if my Lady pray
To our Father which is in Heaven
But for joy my heart’s quick pulses play
For to me her love is given.

Then who shall close my Lady’s eyes
And who shall fold her hands?
Will any hearken if she cries
Up to the unknown lands?

6. Her Eyes by Edwin Arlington Robinson

Up from the street and the crowds that went,
Morning and midnight, to and fro,
Still was the room where his days he spent,
And the stars were bleak, and the nights were slow.

Year after year, with his dream shut fast,
He suffered and strove till his eyes were dim,
For the love that his brushes had earned at last, —
And the whole world rang with the praise of him.

But he cloaked his triumph, and searched, instead,
Till his cheeks were sere and his hairs were gray.
“There are women enough, God knows,” he said. . . .
“There are stars enough — when the sun’s away.”

Then he went back to the same still room
That had held his dream in the long ago,
When he buried his days in a nameless tomb,
And the stars were bleak, and the nights were slow.

And a passionate humor seized him there —
Seized him and held him until there grew
Like life on his canvas, glowing and fair,
A perilous face — and an angel’s, too.

Angel and maiden, and all in one, —
All but the eyes. — They were there, but yet
They seemed somehow like a soul half done.
What was the matter? Did God forget? . . .

But he wrought them at last with a skill so sure
That her eyes were the eyes of a deathless woman, —
With a gleam of heaven to make them pure,
And a glimmer of hell to make them human.

God never forgets. — And he worships her
There in that same still room of his,
For his wife, and his constant arbiter
Of the world that was and the world that is.

And he wonders yet what her love could be
To punish him after that strife so grim;
But the longer he lives with her eyes to see,
The plainer it all comes back to him.

7. Eyes Like Yours by Joan Wu Lang Pacinabo

Eyes like yours, baby

it is like heaven on earth

no more misery…

I am lost for words

imagination travel

I’ve seen an angel…

Been to paradise

in a garden of roses

filled with butterflies…

Your eyes tell a lot

I can see you through your soul

and I love you more…
