When You Open Your Eyes


Your eyes have been shut so tight
You see through the truth, come out to the light
Don't be afraid, it's not too late to say
I worry about you each and every day
The dark is fun, until you run into the wall
I will always be there, I know you will fall
The scars will heal one day
So trust me and get out of the dark were you lay
I worry more than I will show
My mind won't let me, and neither will my ego
Your heart is tired so give it a rest
I will carry you up the rest of the steps
I know no matter what I tell you
Your eyes won't open to the sky so blue
I take time to pray for you each day
But it's so hard when I know your heart is faker than clay
I will always be here to catch your tears
But is trusting me your only fear?
Don't give up on me just yet
My pen still writes, no time to fret
I don't know how to end this just yet
But don't worry my sister…

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
