To My Grandparents

We thought of you in love today,
but that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday
and days before that, too
We think of you in silence,
we often speak your name
Now all we have is memories
and your picture in a frame
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we’ll never part
God has you in His keeping,
we have you in our hearts

His Eyes

His eyes hold the deepest pain
But only a soul that can relate sees
The sadness, disappointment and sorrow
His soul is crying out to me
To listen, to understand, and know deep down his love is real
But he has such a hard time expressing emotions; he was told he couldn’t feel
Man up, wipe those tears, da fuck you crying for
Now he won’t let anyone in; he’s afraid to open that door
But real eyes realize real hurt that’s buried deep within
Struggling to keep your head above water so Iblis won’t win
It’s amazing when someone comes along and sings the harmony to your hearts song
Matching pitch and rhythm right on time
Take my hand; your heart can heal with mine
Patience, loyalty, respect, and love is all I have to give
Together, you and I, can learn to forget and forgive
Encourage each other to free ourselves from internal slavery
Side by side, hand in hand, it’s just you and me
Using our pain and telling our story through our art
You’ll never have to doubt my love; it’s you that has my heart
And I know that it’s me who has yours too
We All Y… Shhhhh; that’s just between me and you
