Hunter Eyes Chasing Face

Like lion I hunt your smiles for miles around,
Stunningly radiant in gradient luminescence,
Salient to the soul, mind deviant, not lenient
To star-starved lover under cover of darkness,
As I hover unseen to discover your hidden den
All to recover what was tossed away and lost
So long ago, but where belongs my heart, this
I know and will show thru wind, rain and snow
No matter how low I must sink below foot-trod
Earth, place of love’s birth, heavenly worth;
Ah! but will you continue to hide, leaving me
With memories to bide my time while I await
Miles of smiles with eyes that chase your face?
