Only Eyes Can Tell

When I was young
I thought its an end
when you lose somebody
but i realized
life goes on

sadness may cloud over us
memories haunting
even at daytime
our eyes may cry no more
for it had dried up already
crying all night

such pain
cannot express
by words alone
only the eyes can tell

what Jesus experienced
when he was abandoned
by his friends
was much deeper
and more painful
than we have
yet he lived on
to give us life
and peace

I know a friend
whose wife died recently
I know his great love for her
for they were inseparables
when she left
the whole world crumbled

but the Lord
lifted him up
giving him
courage to go on
believing someday
they will see each other again
somewhere in heaven

you and I may never have
the one we love back again
I beleive
the Lord's best for us
is just nearby
we just have to trust in HIM
