My Mothers Eyes

It always seems it may not always have been to clear Telling mother you’re not sure about who you are What you thought she was always expecting to hear Went right into her heart like a knife to reopen a scar And to finally come to see, no one could erase all the lies No matter how I try I feel like a star in the sky after it dies Reminding me life is just a quick sparkle alone in the skies One thing is true, and that I wish is, that I never knew The truth will always remind me of, my Mothers eyes But the truth is here and my heart cries as I look out to the skies And just admitted the truth and dropped this phony disguise Now I will always be alone in the cold lonely darkness of the skies Lost in the black holes of the heavens, hidden behind my Mothers eyes And I can’t get away from the things that I still feel and hear The whisper of a sigh and a cry, and the drop of a tear Don't know why I hadn't thought, or known, but now I realize In the overtones of their cries , tears, and all of their sighs I will always remember, I saw it all, with my own Mothers eyes
