Is it what you write,
Is it what you say
Is it in your eyes
Or your body that sways

Your hands want work
Your words a change
Your eyes speak love
But your body’s still in chains

You cannot find a key
The balm’s kept away
The blood is still pouring
Your wounds gnaw away

The tears start flowing
The hurt starts burning
The eyes are blinding
Your age is catching

The youth is lost
It will never come back
The hope has faded
The flickers are left

The sparks are enough
It lights another candle
The flame becomes stronger
And your will is back

I see the smiles you gave
The happiness you spread
Those eyes are still yours
Only your body came back.
