    By Tinka Boukes

    I crave to embrace you

    To feel you, your voice

    A gentle breeze in my ear

    A smile lights up my face As I look at you

    Into those gorgeous blue eyes Full of life

    Full of love

    No thoughts make me happier

    Than dancing in the sand with you

    As shades of purple sunset fades away

    Connected to all that is you

    Elegant and graceful

    Time forgotten

    The shadow of a smile remains

    The sun trying to take another peek

    Gazing through the windows of my soul

    As I take another look

    Deep into those gorgeous blue eyes

    "My high school choir performed Alexis’s piece “Gorgeous Blue Eyes”.  My student quickly fell in love with its lush harmonies and beautifully written lines.  This song has a beautiful balance of sustained homophony and lyrical polyphony."
