Empty Eyes

He’s felt the slaps time and again,

He’s heard the pleas and lies,

He’ll not believe he now is safe

As he looks on with empty eyes.

He wants to scream and tell them all

That the love just never dies,

But there is only silence in his world

As he looks on with empty eyes.

He can’t go home and he can’t go on

without those family ties,

But there are only strangers in his sight

As he looks on with empty eyes.

The casket is white but the sky is black

As the mourner sobs and cries,

The tears are streaming but he does not know

That they come from his empty eyes.

God care for my mom now, he asks

in a voice both old and wise,

His heart was broke and reflected then

In the depth of his empty eyes.
