Look into my eyes
As they reveal all my secrets,
As they unveil all my hurts and pain.
Look and see just how much I care for you.
Listen to the beat of my heart
Pounding as if it is crying out to you.
Can you hear the rhythm of the song?
It simply says, I miss you.
My arms are stretched out wide
Longing to hold you near.
But, they remain empty.
Unfortunately, you are not here.
When will you see my hurt?
When will you hear my pain?
When will you lie in my arms
And hear me say I love you, again?
