Sweet Songs of My Heart

count the layers of mud
as you wash them away
to see how many times
i've fallen
look deep into the meanings
of words i've written
to see just who it is
i was calling.
gently trace over the scars
make a map to this heart
feel what it is
that i used to miss

now look deep into my eyes
not to see how much ive cried
no instead see
all of the happy
look at the light of a thousand
fallen stars in which i caught
throughout the years
and look at the glow they brought
look at these eyes that once
were glassy marbles
and you'll see each is now
a world of its own
now i feel the warmth
chased away the cold
no more frost bitten spirit
no, now it only sings the sweetest of songs
so that only his heart can hear it <3
