J.B. Smith

The Trials

I’m on my bended knees praying for you to help me lord
I’m walking through the fire, help me free my soul
Now that I’m out I never felt so alone
For so long I held my tongue
I was hoping for a fantasy, wishing you could dry up the rain in me
But time ran out and you were gone along with the smiles and glee
Still till this day you can’t stand up and face me
Looking through his eyes I see my life both smiles and cry’s
I’m sorry I did this to you
All I wanted was for your love to be true
I fear the day you’ll be gone and I’ll be without you
With tears in secrecy I’ll stand strong and complete what you told me to
I pray for strength, to keep the faith, and keep him safe
While I deal with the poison of the night
The darkness that can consume one’s life
The window to the soul is through one’s eyes
Look closely and find the demons inside
For the darkness that seeps through the veins
Will escape through the soul and exemplify
The smile on my face is an optical illusion
My heart lies in nothing but ruins
But there he is the innocence of me
And now I see life differently
Thank you for leaving me a gift that brings me peace and serenity
