SeeingI wish you could see youAs I see youAll golden and silvery and brightI wish you could see youAs I see youInfused with a glorious lightIf only you knew how dear you areSpecial and important and WOW!If only you knew what you mean to meYou'd see you as I see you nowNo matter what's been done to youNo matter if you hide it awayI see through it all, the pain and the fearAnd you're perfect in every way
Wanted ChildThere was a timeWhen I was blindAll was dark and warmFaint beating soundsBlurred musical notesI was safe from harmThat beat, those notesAre part of meOr I'm a part of themCradled softly, gently thereOur beats keep time the sameThen, squeezing, tighteningPushing me outI am being bornI heard the laughThe musical beatsThen I'm taken from her armsSo cold, so brightSo scratchy and loudI don't know where I amI ache and hurtNo loving warmthOnly quickly touched by "them"Forever laterSo scared and aloneI'm held a longer timeHearing different beatsWe slowly matchOur heartbeats quickly alignOur eyes meetSoft brown, baby blueBoth thinking "you are mine"Hearts attachStrangers no morMother and child for the rest of timeForever lostTo one who lovedWho kept me safe and warmGiven freelyTo one who lovesWho protects me from all harm
