Heavy eyes and heavy hearts
Will bear the weight a back cannot.
The weight of days that run too late
Would leave a weathered spine unstraight.
But eyes will keep our minds awake
When time’s the only thing at stake.
The pain of love that’s come and gone
A body could not carry on
The heart will persevere in time
When all its pieces recombine…
… for broken hearts and tired eyes
are stronger than they seem sometimes.
