EYES


EYES
I looked into your eyes
I could see the sadness
I could see the pain
Your eyes told me a story
a sad story
They told me how bruised you were
I could see the way your heart was bleeding
Although you putted a smile on your face
But your eyes
Your eyes told me a story
You pretended to be fine
But your eyes were filled with sorrow
Your eyes led me to the hurting heart
Through your eyes
I could see the burden you were carrying
Your eyes showed me how lonely you were
Even though you were among a crowd
Your eyes told me that you had lost hope
Lost yourself
Lost your dreams
Lost everything
Although in front of me
You did not cry
But your eyes told me that there was blood flowing in them
Your eyes
I wish I could remove the sadness
Deep down in your heart
So that your eyes could SMILE

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
