Behind Guarded Eyes

DownUp +11

Just a simple smile
It’s amazing what you can hide
It’s so easy to pretend
With everyone so blind

Just a few small words
It’s all so fake
Am I living in a nightmare?
Or am I awake?

It’s hard to say
How I really feel
Is it a misunderstanding?
Or is it real?

Who to trust
It’s hard to be sure
Who will care?
I’m confused once more

Deep within the soul
The truth lies
Hidden from the world
Behind guarded eyes

It’s Your Loss…I guess

DownUp +7

I told you the truth.
You told me the truth.
The truth of that I love you.
The truth of that you don’t love me.

Now I’m here all broken inside.
Now your all feeling good inside.
With me crying with my bedroom door locked.
With your hands locked with hers.

But of course your with her and not with me.
But of course I’m with nobody and not with u.
But I guess,that it is your loss.
But you guess, that its just another one of those girls…

I guess it is your loss.
I guess it’s my heart broken.
When you see me with my friends.
And when I see you with her

I will always love you

DownUp +8

My love for you was everlasting
Never to be forgotten
Till the day you broke my heart
Now all I wanna do is forget you
And my love ever existed

The worst thing is to see you happy
Without me, not even a glance back to see if im still there
You say that i should move on
My head agrees, but my heart says never let go

The hardest thing is letting you go when you’re always in my head
Then I tell myself, you don’t want me..
So why do i still want you?

I’m not sure if I’ll ever get over you
I’m not sure if I can move on
I’m not sure if I can ever love anyone else like I loved you

But one thing I’m sure about is..
I will always love you.

Just being with you is enough

DownUp +3

Kindly pull me close to you
And whisper in my ear
Tell me you love me
While you gently stroke my hair.

Then let there be silence
Listen to waves roll in from sea
And i’ll sink deeper into your arms
As we sit out on the beach.

When stars reflect off water
Lit by the sky above
I realize you don’t need to speak
Just being with you is enough.

Because i miss you

DownUp +28

I sit and cry in the hallway
just because i miss you
i can’t work
just because i miss you
i get mad easily
just because i miss you
i can’t think properly
just because i miss you
i sit and pout
just because i miss you
i can’t sleep right
just because i miss you
i get books
just because i miss you
i can’t stop talking to you
just because i miss you
i sit and argue
just because i miss you
i can’t stop thinking of you
just because i miss you
because i left you
i can’t do anything right
so I’m coming back
just for you

Never let go

DownUp -2

Free falling into nothingness
no parachute to slow me down.
The pressure has been lifted
replaced with a pleasant weightlessness

The ground accelerates towards me
and I brace myself for impact
and am surprised when I stop abruptly
confused by the comfort I now feel

Strong arms have caught me

Arms that have become my comfort,
my safety net, my home.

Please, never let go

Our Mama’s Hands

DownUp +22

I saw you looking at your hands with disgust
You hate them now and hide them you must
But mama, there’s no shame in hands so worn
Because all they’ve touched since you were born

You say you hate them ‘cause they’re so frail,
So veined and aged and red, not pale
You don’t remember how much they’ve done
To bring the 5 of us to who we’ve become

You don’t remember the love they’ve shown
The tireless tending to us we’ve known
To tying the shoes and showing us how
To guiding us through all we know now

You don’t remember they’ve nurtured us well
That they soothed us so tenderly when we fell
That they hugged and held us when we were hurt
That they scrubbed and cleaned us of the dirt

You don’t remember that they wiped our tears
That they gave us a refuge from our fears
That they washed and doctored our injured knees
And they offered a tissue when we sneezed

You have no reason to hate them now
Without those hands we would not know how
To use our own hands as you once did
To soothe and nurture and worries to rid

We can hopefully teach our young ones now
That our hands are special and that somehow
It all began with your loving hands
They are so special and that’s how it stands
Mama, don’t hate them, ‘cause they’re etched with love
And Daddy’s patiently waiting to hold them, up above
