Musings From A Musical Mind

He’s Got Bette Davis Eyes

So (album)

Image via Wikipedia

This morning I woke up and looked over at my sweet sleepy husband.  He looked like an angel – and I was just watching him – wondering when he would wake up – when he suddenly and slowly opened up his eyes.  They were so cute and puffy from lack of sleep after a very late (or early) work night.  As he looked at me trying to focus – I thought they looked very much like pictures I had seen of the sultry and sexy Bette Davis – (just the eyes) – and before I could retract it, I said “You’ve got Bette Davis Eyes

I’m sure he does not appreciate my humor at that time in the morning – but I really did mean it as a complement 🙂  He’s a pretty good sport – most of the time and usually laughs right out loud at my poking fun at him –  and it is easy and comfortable being with him – I love to hear him laugh like that.  And his eyes crinkle with humor and fun – much mischief and ‘little boy’ innocence – it is really nice.

Eyes are the ‘window to the soul‘ and many things can be revealed about a person when you look into them.  Fear, confidence, pain, hurt, frustration, peace, fun, mischief – yes it all revealed in a moment – through the eyes.

I LOVE brown eyes.  they are deep and expressive, mysterious and soft.

I also LOVE green eyes.  Whimsical and sparkling with fun.  Captivating and full of mischief.

But my favorite are Blue eyes.  My husband has blue eyes.  They are sweet and kind.  They hold me with just a glance and touch something deep within me.

My eyes are also blue – and they are my husband’s favorite thing about me.  He can read them very well – and understands what lies beneath the surface after all these years.  They are my ‘window’ to what is inside of me.  Sometimes shining with fun – sometimes brimming with tears and emotion – they are all a part of me – and he loves to drown in them.  I am very lucky.

Below is a song by Peter GabrielIn Your Eyes”  the lyrics perfectly express how I feel – and how my husband feels about me and my eyes.  Enjoy!

God Bless

  1. I thought you were going to post Bette Davis Eyes. lol

  2. That’s a good song. And I actually like the song “Betty David Eyes,” too. My eyes are mud brown. That’s a nicer way of putting it than what I usually say. 🙂 My husband’s eyes are pale ice blue gray. His dad’s were like that. The rest of his family has blue eyes, too, but they are darker and brighter blue. Those icy eyes can be frightening at times. Of the four kids, one has brown eyes, one has hazel/green and two have blue.

    Eyes DO tell you a lot. Folks are always asking which part of a man do you look at first. Well, I’m usually NOT looking, but if I do. . . I’m usually attempting to look them in the eye. It’s a good way to get a peek into what’s inside.

    • I agree with you – it can be awkward holding a gaze from a man – but it is important to get that ‘peek’ into the soul. You really can tell so much – if they will let you see it.

    Great song my love, and thanks for the wonderful compliment! And yes, I’m a sucker for your beautiful large blue eyes, especially when you smile revealing the little crinkly “crow’s feet”!
    Can you tell I’m a “goner”?
