In Our Eyes

I lie awake and I think of the consequences
Wasting time recollecting our missed chances
Live and learn is a comfort we all found in your charm

Now and then as I trudge through the daily motions
Your memory floods in a wave from the deep emotion
I cry and laugh being grateful for a visit from the tide

So you see it’s no surprise
When you hugged us with your eyes
We felt the love

Sometimes for fun I think of our conversations
Stories bent as we sought artistic accommodations
Our spirit fresh but the message was never far from home

A willing hand for the souls that you took upon you
Freely given ‘cause it’s the code and the life you’re used to
A simple man who could calm or ignite with just a smile

So you see it’s no surprise
When you hugged us with your eyes
We felt the love

Sunsets fade the day with orange and purple trailers
Larger than life as you were too
And next our paths will cross one thing remains unchanged
My daily thought about you

That’s what friends do they look out and think of one another
Finding sunshine amidst cloudy and darkened weather
Well-done friend we all found sunshine within you

So you see I’m not surprised
We hugged you right back with our eyes
I sure hope you felt the love
