See it shining in her eyes
The rounded teardrops crystallized
And spilling out onto her cheek
And spelling “fear” along her face,
I never thought I’d be the one
To see her shining like the Sun
And in a shroud of mystery
The silhouette of a stranger’s child.
Through such an empty, broken smile
She forces out the words so vile,
And now the light that’s shone inside her
Will last long after we’re dead.
Because in the haste of their decision,
She pays the price, so I go ahead
And wipe the trails of acid rain
Away from her beautiful, twisted face
And by her sinking shoulders
Take her down
To rest her mind, I’ll tell her how
Her light is blinding, even now.
Though some will say she did it wrong
And others still, will cast their stones,
I know for sure I wasn’t dreaming
When the light inside her shone…
