When I Look Through Your Eyes

When I look through your eyes,
I see all the childhood hate.
You think one day death shall be your fate.

When I look through your eyes,
I can feel all your pain.
The bruises, the cuts and nothing to gain.

When I look through your eyes,
I can see his fist.
I hear you cry,
Then the silence and the mist,
Then the whisper 'God why can't I die? '

When I look through your eyes,
I know there are others.
The ones who are now angels singing at heavens gate.
For the next time you think this is your fate.

When I look through your eyes,
I see what you don't,
And I hear what you won't.

When I look through your eyes,
I know this is not your fate.
I know no time soon will you be singing at heavens gate.

When I look through your eyes,
I see the man you are today.
The hate has now all faded away.

Then I see that little girl with the big blue eyes,
For I know you will never let her cry.
You will always be there so she never shed a tear,
You will always be there to take away her fear.

For I know dear friend when I look through your eyes,
I know you made it and I hear no crys.
For you have everything to gain,
And you have made it through all your pain.

For the others who sing at heavens gate,
I know you will be there for the next whos fate,
Is with you singing at heavens gate.
