Laura Gilpin

I thought of you as my Mountaintop;
 Thought of You as my peak.
 Thought of you as Everything,
I had But couldn’t keep.
Linger on, Your pale blue eyes.
If I could make the world as Pure
And Strange as what I see,
I’d put you In the mirror
I put in front of Me.
Linger On, Your Pale Blue Eyes.
