So I Closed My Eyes

I saw you struggle to fall asleep
So I closed my eyes
I saw you on days when you were weak
So I closed my eyes
I saw tears rolling down your cheek
So I closed my eyes

I saw you drowning in your grief
So I closed my eyes
I saw you lose faith in your belief
So I closed my eyes
I saw you begging on the street
So I closed my eyes

I saw you sleeping on concrete
So I closed my eyes
I saw you without a meal to eat
So I closed my eyes
I saw you struggling through the heat
So I closed my eyes

Saw the cold immobilize your feet
So I closed my eyes
I saw you fighting not to weep
So I closed my eyes
I saw more in a year than most in a lifetime would see
And So, I closed my eyes
