Saddened eyes 
Framed by a window
Streaked with rain
Like tears on her face
One simple choice
One painless operation
One mistake
She’s longing to erase

Sterile walls
Crowding in around her
Fluorescent lights
Blinding her eyes
But all the pain
And indecision leave her
When her newborn baby cries

He feels every fear
And through every year
He holds every tear

Tired eyes
Watch from a window,
The carefree play
Of one little boy
Working nights
It’s been hard to raise him
But through the pain
She finds a deeper joy

He feels every fear
And through every year
He holds every tear

My son don’t be ashamed to question why
Don’t chase the water from your eyes
God know knows every time you cry
And He’ll be there to love you
He loves you…

Years go by
He stands at her grave side
A trophy of
Her courage and her choice
He says a prayer
A song of expectation
Then walks ahead
An echo of her voice

He feels every fear
And through every year
He holds every tear
He loves you…

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” (Psalm 56:8)

    This is beautiful. Not familiar with the song and actually I didn’t remember ever reading that Bible verse. God is really something else.
