There Are Women Whose Eyes

from a line by Paul Eluard

There are women whose eyes
drop anchors inside of you,

not even the tallest seas
can threaten,

hurricane winds fall flat,
storm clouds gather far away,

and dare not approach.
There are women whose eyes

fill your wounds with sweetness,
kiss away the pain of heartache,

put you back on your feet,
stand you upright

until you march forward again.
There are women whose eyes

make you strong and steady,
whose eyes make you a man.
