In Your Eyes


From the beautiful song by Peter Gabriel, "In Your Eyes", lyric sentiments for those who forget themselves in the struggle to help others:

Love, I don't like to see so much pain
    So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
    I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive ...

and the refrain, perhaps a reminder to pause and breathe and love and appreciate the Now and Here:

In your eyes, the light the heat
In your eyes, I am complete
    In your eyes, I see the doorway to a thousand churches
    In your eyes, the resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes, I see the light and the heat
In your eyes, oh, I want to be that complete
    I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes ...
