Green Eyes

Green eyes like emerald gems,
A sight that always stems, 
A feeling of awe and wonder, 
That makes my heart start to thunder. 

The color of the forest deep, 
A secret that it always keeps, 
A hue that's both bright and bold, 
And never seems to get old. 

The eyes that sparkle with delight, 
And fill my days with such light, 
A shade that's both rare and unique, 
And always leaves me feeling meek. 

So here's to those with eyes of green, 
The most beautiful 
I've ever seen, 
A sight that always takes my breath, 
And fills my heart with love and depth.
