Can you see the light in my eyes?
Is it still there hidden under the pain?
Can you see the smile under all the tears that I’ve cried?
Has it faded? Are you searching in vain?
Are you questioning my right mind?
Because of all the mean things that I say to you?
Are you still trying to find ME inside?
Are you not able to accept the stark truth…?
There is a pain where once was the light;
The body has crumbled with years that I’ve had;
My lips are now moaning, you won’t find a smile;
One thing awaits me… the ending, the death.
