Her eyes



Her eyes

The mist in our faces
does not make your tears
disappear
and it pains me to know
it is something I did

Something you cannot explain
to me again

I hope down the road
it will be better

Down the road is someone else''s
pain to pray for

A pain that hurts me less
as my telephone rings
but I do not answer it

I do not need that talk
from you right now

Somewhere in the night
a dog is rattling his chain

Somewhere in the night
I pray he breaks free
from it

Somewhere in the night
I know now the leaves
are still falling like thunder
I cannot escape
as days turn to weeks
without you

I have seen it all happen
before

Months will fall to bury me
but I still will not know
how to apologize
for something I do not know I did

Because somehow in the night
you are wiser than me

Someday will return
to me like when I was struck dumb
by that look in your eyes
So tomorrow
when you see me in the street
do not forget

Do not forget how you rattle
my chain in the dark

Do not forget how you
still startle me

I will not forget to breathe
this time
until I learn from you
that I can

That is my promise

And somewhere in this world
a tree falls

Somehow here
I feel crushed by its weight

Somehow knowing
I have been dieing to run
since we met

But somewhere now
I can say I love you
with conviction

And when the moon shines
and we lay under the stars

I will try to remember
that you say
you love me too
