"When because love the eye due"

It depends on the context of the dialogue it was used, without that most people can't help, except a native speaker.

It feels like there's something missing in that phrase.

It's pretty much just saying "Your eyes because/when" or like "when eyes are yours because". Something along those lines.
'course, I'm quite rusty in my Tagalog, so it probably doesn't help much.
