How can I?

How can I see the love in your eyes
When mine are clouded by tears

How can I hear the things that you say
When my mind is churning with fear

How can I feel the truth in your heart
When mine is smothered in doubt


How can I hope that the future is bright
When my dreams are shattered like glass

How can I wake to face a new day
When my sleep is so restless and light

How can I feel at peace in this world
When consumed by anguish and hurt


How can I look deep into your eyes
When I know that I cause you concern

How can you live with such worry and pain
When I tell you I just can’t go on

How can I feel the warmth of the sun
When my blood lies cold in my veins
